Join SID!

Welcome to SID!

SID has a large and vibrant global network of individual and institutional members, local chapters and partner organizations, in more than 50 countries. It works with more than 100 associations, networks and institutions involving academia, parliamentarians, students, political leaders and development experts, both at local and international level.

Why joining SID

Joining the SID network implies not only the opportunity to be part of one of the first founded, historical and lively global communities of people and institutions working in  development. It also means contributing to support the idea and the vision that move SID since it was founded in 1957:  Acting as a global space for honest dialogue and interconnectedness among diverse actors at community, national, and international level to promote development and social change with a holistic, mulitdisciplinary and multisectorial approach.

Joining a SID chapter

It is possible to join the SID network by becoming member of a SID local chapter or by joining the international secretariat. We invite you to visit the SID network page to find the SID chapter closest to you! Visit their websites or get in contact with them via phone or e-mail to find out more about how you can participate and contribute to their activities.
