Building local communities of action
On the Third Thursday (3T) of each month, NCD Action Network members host regional gatherings around the world. A 3T meeting provides an opportunity for students and young professionals in cities and towns throughout the world to share stories, discuss common interests, and identify mutual opportunities for collaboration in both local and global contexts.
Everyone is welcome
Anyone who is interested in NCDs is invited to participate in our 3T meetings. New people join every month, and you never know who might show up at a meeting. Past meetings included local students, people from the private sector, urban planners, architects, economists, professors, and even local politicians.
Benefits from participating
A lot can come out of participating in a 3T meeting, including: Networking; engaging in discussions; making new friends and meeting colleagues; writing articles for journals, newsletters, blogs on NCD Action or opinion pieces; engaging in local action projects; and pairing with another 3T group elsewhere in the world.
By connecting the experiences and ideas of local communities with the wider global network, NCD Action achieves a powerful local-to-global model for action that will harness the ideas, energy, and passion of students and young professionals to transform the way we develop effective NCD solutions.
