International Development Week

This post was syndicated from International Development Week website.

International Development Week is celebrated Canada-wide to showcase the work done around the world by Canadians aiming to alleviate inequality and prevent social injustice.

So what exactly is IDW all about? IDW is celebrated across Canada during the first week of February by the Canadian government, colleges, universities, NGOs, and other globe loving organizations and citizens. This year at Humber College, we will celebrate with workshops, panels, guest speakers, and other thought-provoking events.

This year’s theme is WATER. Truly the most valuable resource on the globe – how does water shape people’s lives, drive economies and support healthy societies? Find out this February.

International Development Week is led by Global Affairs Canada:
“IDW provides a national forum for the Government of Canada, its partners, and the development community to share international development results and achievements with Canadians. It also provides many opportunities for Canadians to become informed about, and involved in, international development.  
Fundamental to Global Affairs Canada’s public engagement initiatives is telling the development story to Canadians and providing them with a clear rationale as to why development is important to them. That story is rooted in our Department’s mission to lead Canada’s international efforts to help people living in poverty— a mission that inspires national pride about Canada’s place in the world. International Development Week is an integral part of Global Affairs Canada’s public engagement activities and provides Canadians with increased awareness of international development.”
