2015 Theme "Hope in Action"

 Inspiring a culture of hope to build a more equal and peaceful world

Our theme stems from the concerns of our colleagues in the European Global Education Week Network that much of the conflict we see around us in the world today arises from inequality.  We need to come together to tackle inequality before resentment and anger spill over into violence.  There is no true peace without justice.

2015 Context

This year at the UN in September the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be adopted as part of the post 2015 development agenda.  Later our leaders will come together to take crucial decisions about climate change.  2015 has also been declared the Year of the Soil to draw attention to our need to protect this rapidly degrading resource that underpins life on earth.  This is certainly a time when we need to inspire Hope in Action alongside our partners in the European Development Education Network and in solidarity with the vulnerable worldwide.

 SUMMARY

Whatever kind of event/s you organise it would be good to include these 4 elements:

1.      Explain why hope is important for action to happen

2.      Show how people acting together have brought about change

3.      Choose inequalities to focus on and offer examples of campaigns to support. 

4.      Aim for participants at events to commit to a campaign for global justice

Download a booklet (6pp) with guidelines for interpreting the theme:  

PDF version  or a  Word.docx version

It develops the 4 elements in the summary above. It includes references to useful reports and videos, ideas and websites, with examples and resources offered by OWW partners and other organisations involved in tackling various kinds of inequalities. There's also a template of a dove for you to print and cut out for collecting pledges at your event.

 

 

2014 Theme "Living Differently"

'Living Differently' leads on from last year's theme about consumption to explore how we can increase the well being of humanity and secure a future environment that can maintain the health of the planet.

A good way to stimulate thinking and get started on planning for your OWW events would be to watch the recent video from "the Story of Stuff" project, 'The Story of Solutions' (here) More ideas on the discussion resources page Here

The leaflet, "Living Differently" is available.

- to download (see 'Recently added Resources' column to the right)
