The International Development Week (IDW) is a Canada-wide event, spearheaded by Global Affairs Canada as an opportunity to highlight the work of Canada's development community and the work of Canada in international development. A number of post-secondary education institutions, not-for-profit organizations, and civil society organizations will participate in weeklong activities, taking place all over Canada.
Humber College is once again bringing together the Humber community to celebrate International Development Week (IDW). This annual nationwide initiative encourages Canadians, especially youth, to learn more about and contribute to international development. Each year, hundreds of students and faculty participate in this event, eager to gain a wider global perspective and share their experiences and ideas on ways to reduce poverty and inequality.
As global citizens, this is an opportunity for the Humber community to share their experiences and ideas on ways to reduce poverty around the world, and bring attention to both global and local initiatives that are sparking change.
IDW is celebrated across Canada during the first week of February by the Canadian government, colleges, universities, NGOs, and other globe loving organizations and citizens. This year at Humber College, we will celebrate with workshops, panels, guest speakers, and other thought-provoking events.
