A bit more about the course:
We all want to live in a fairer and more just society, but when the world’s eight richest people control the same wealth between them as the poorest half of the world’s population, it can be hard to know where to start to tackle inequality.
These interactive evenings will deepen understanding of issues related to development and globalisation, introduce participants to like-minded, passionate peers, and ultimately help them to understand themselves and their role in bringing about change.
Each week students will cover one topic, and learn how to take action on it.
Week 1: Introduction to development
Week 2: Migration
Week 3 International Trade & Livelihoods
Week 4: Global Health
Week 5: Environment
Week 6: Taking the Next Steps
