International Development Week 2018February 5, 2018
From February 4-10th, 2018, CESO joins Global Affairs Canada, individuals and organizations across the country in taking part in International Development Week (IDW). We not only celebrate Canadian contributions to poverty reduction but IDW2018 is also a chance to engage others in learning about—and contributing to—those efforts.
Established in 1991, International Development Week is a uniquely Canadian tradition. The theme for IDW 2018, ‘Partners for a Better World’, encourages all Canadians to be partners in building a better, more inclusive, peaceful and prosperous world. The efforts of Canadians, including CESO Volunteer Advisors, play an important role in achieving sustainable development at home and around the world.
