SAVE THE DATE - SWIDN's Online Conference 2022

From Good Development to Global Solidarity

We were delighted to see nearly 300 people attending our online conference in 2021 and we hope to see many of you again in 2022. Put the dates in your diary - 11 - 13 October 2022 - and watch this space for more information on our LISTEN, LEARN and CONNECT session soon!

This years theme will be 'From Good Development to Global Solidarity'. Our sector is increasingly engaging in conversations around its role in upholding inequality, in reinforcing coloniality and in the practical and moral mechanics of sharing power. Toolkits to shift the power, movements towards localisation and building our knowledge and action around decolonisation are all positive steps towards change. But many of our SWIDN members and associates wonder what the future role is, if any, for a UK-based INGO like theirs, and whether its possible to continue to work for change without reinforcing global inequalities that have existed in our sector for so long. 

At the SWIDN 2022 Online Conference, we’ll be discussing this question across different themes and in different formats. We'll share more information with you soon, but for now please save the date and we look forward to seeing you there!
