Some of the highlights from recent One World Centre’s initiatives will be on show at the charity’s annual general meeting tomorrow (Wednesday).
The evening’s entertainment will begin with pupils aged 14 and 15 at Castle Rushen performing a selection of poems they have written on development issues.
This will be followed by a chance to view six short films (none longer than four minutes) created by primary school students on the theme It’s Not Fair!
Vicky Harrop will round up the night with an illustrated talk featuring some of her stunning photographs on the work of ASK (Action Saves Kids) in Bangalore. She currently has an exhibition of these pictures on show at the One World Centre Pop Up shop in Duke Street, Douglas.
The evening will also see a group of local schoolteachers receiving their Global Teacher Award certificates after completing the Global Teacher training through the One World Centre.
The One World Centre exists to educate about global issues such as poverty, injustice and sustainability and to encourage a positive response. We work with young people and community groups across the Island. New members are very welcome and anyone interested in the Centre’s work is warmly invited to attend.
The AGM takes place at Green’s Café in St John’s. Doors open at 6pm. A short formal meeting will get under way 7pm with the entertainment starting around 7.20pm.
