Restless Development Directors Conference 2016

For two weeks in December, all Directors from Restless Development gathered in Nepal for the annual conference, where Directors meet as part of a mobile headquarters to connect, learn, train, globally sign off policies and make the big decisions and plans for the year ahead. Follow their story!


  1. In 2016, Restless Development launched a new strategy. As part of Restless Development's ongoing commitment to transparency, we opened the digital doors of our annual Directors Conference, with Directors sharing updates as we dug deeper into our new strategy, and made the decisions and plans to ensure it's success in the coming years.
  2. Below is a wrap up of the social media highlights, with Directors online all week using #WeAreRestless. Follow this hashtag everyday for updates from across the Restless Development world.
  3. The conference kicked off with Directors learning from the Restless Development Nepal team - specifically on their work responding to the 2015 earthquake and on the opportunities and challenges facing Nepal.
  4. Directors were joined on the second day by partners from UNICEF, UNFPA and USAID where they discussed our programmes & partnerships in Nepal, and wider relationships around the globe.
  5. Our board chairs from Nepal, USA and UK joined the group to lead a session on governance and boards.
  6. In a break between sessions, our UK Director, Rosanne Palmer-White took to Twitter to introduce our fantastic Hub Directors to the wide world. Meet Mariam, Margaret and Farai!
