The second annual Charter4Change meeting was held on 10-11 October 2017 in The Hague having participation of signatories from the INGO community and endorsers from local and national settings. 34 staff representing 21 signatories attended this meeting, as well as 10 local endorsers. Three additional guests were also present on the first day, representing the Dutch and Belgian governments, and the IFRC.
