The Global Solidarity Summit brings together individuals and organisations from Wales working on solidarity projects across the world. From small community groups to Wales-based branches of international NGOs, we’re raising the profile of the sector in Wales.
Last year, the onset of a global pandemic moved our annual summit online for the first time. This brought with it challenges and opportunities. While we weren’t able to meet, greet, network and catch up in person, we were able to reach more partners across the world, in a format that allowed for flexible viewing.
Coinciding with taking our summit online, we also renamed it from the International Development Summit to the Global Solidarity Summit. As an organisation, a sector and a society, we’ve been on a journey of self-discovery about how we speak, act and interact with partners and minoritised communities. A key part of this journey is Hub Cymru Africa’s #ReframingTheNarrative project which aims to challenge and change the established way we speak and think about the aid sector from one steeped in problematic post-colonial assumptions to one of solidarity, respect and healing.
So join us for this year’s Global Solidarity Summit. Join the online conversation by using the hashtag #GlobalUndod2022 on social media. Register once and get access to all our sessions across both days.
