OWW Email Newsletter 14th November, 2016
How was YOUR One World Week?
We’re looking forward to hearing about it…
Please download an evaluation form, fill it in and email to OWW – please complete a section D for each event you held, whether it was a cosy coffee morning, a week-long exhibition or anything in between.
We really do need your feedback - it helps us cater for organisers’ needs in future and it helps us to explain to the Charity Commission, our Partners, our funders and potential funders just how worthwhile OWW is. They want to know: how many events? What were they about? How many people were involved? Who came? What did people do and learn?
We know from our own experience how difficult it is to count up numbers when you’re in the midst of an event, let alone the ethnicities and ages of people attending. But rough estimates are better than nothing and your feedback will be much appreciated.
We’re beginning to receive reports from some groups that the theme attracted a lot of attention, with new local organisations joining the planning teams, events taking place in new venues and serious discussion events and celebratory party events very well attended.

And for 2017’s theme?
One of our Trustees, will soon be discussing next year’s theme with the Europe-wide Global Education Week Network. They come up with an overarching theme which we usually then customise for the UK audience. We would love to have your views on what issues you would like OWW to focus on next year. Do you want to develop further some aspect of the 2016 theme or focus on a different set of issues? We can feed your ideas into the discussion in Europe.
Finally, as ever, any donations are really welcome – OWW’s continuation depends increasingly on donations from events and supporters.
With best wishes from the One World Week team,
Alison, Aneta, Ingrid, Jonaid, Roger, Sarah, Sue,
and all at Webber Design helping us build our new, exciting website.
