Joining the Generations: working together for people powered development

Wednesday 8 October 2014, 

6:30-8:00pm, followed by refreshments

24 Greencoat place, Victoria, SW1P 1RD

Across the world, people of all ages are joining together to tackle one of the greatest issues of out time: Poverty.

Younger and older people, among the most overlooked and disenfranchised in many societies, are finding fresh ways to approach ongoing problems. So from Liverpool to Lilongwe and from Southampton to Sana'a amazing things are happening to address global poverty.

Join us for drama, spoken word, and live links from partners and volunteers in the developing world. 

And hear from a panel of younger and older people to explore some key questions: how are generations working together to amke change? What signs of hope are there? And what can young people learn from those who have gone ahead  of them?

(Progressio's AGM, open to all members, will take place from 5:30pm)

RSVP at Eventbrite.
