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.
The 2023 Summit will take place on Tuesday 23rd May at the University of South Wales Conference Centre in Treforest. Just minutes on foot from Treforest train station and with quick, easy access to the M4, this dedicated, purpose-built conference centre is just 20 minutes from the capital city.
(Re)Connecting Communities is the Summit theme. As we continue to adjust to post-Covid realities, this will be an invaluable opportunity to hear from leading voices in the sector while meeting and networking with colleagues and peers.
For the first time, the Summit will be a hybrid event, and participants will be able to join the plenary sessions and one workshop online if they cannot attend in person.
Kaleidoscope Trust executive director Lady Phyll and television presenter and producer Mo Jannah will be our keynote speakers, with Welsh Government minister Jane Hutt MS delivering the opening address. Panellists for the afternoon discussion will consist of winners of the 2023 Partnership Awards.
The four workshops will cover a range of topics, including climate change, land rights, digital inclusion and data-led communication. A safeguarding fringe event and a drumming workshop will be held during the lunch break, and the day will conclude with a networking reception.
We’re looking forward to seeing you in Treforest or online!
