Information and Key Dates

This year as part of Speak Act Do, we are running the “Let’s Tackle…” series, these are webinars in which Concern’s overseas employees will speaker from their country of practise about the programmes they run relating to Gender Equality, Conflict, Poverty, Climate Change and Hunger. The webinars will last up to fifty minutes. We will also be hosting a launch online, MC’ed by Youth Hosts, and featuring five overseas speakers talking for five minutes about their work and how they got into development. As well as all this, on November 9th there will be a National Youth Event to celebrate the Last Fast and to highlight the problem of World Hunger.

As well as the resources for Speak Act Do on this webpage, in October teachers will receive a lesson plan on Mis- & Dis- Information and how to spot it.

In March, we will hold a “Meet the Expert” event at which students will receive tips from experts on how to improve their projects!

In May, the top projects will be invited to present at our Agents of Change event.

Research

A wise person once said, knowledge is power. In Concern, finding out information and using expertise from communities and Concern staff from all over the world is a key part of what we do. From responding to a cyclone to supporting women’s empowerment, knowledge and understanding are vital parts of making these happen.
