ONE WORLD WEEK 2020:
NOVEMBER 23rd – 29th
YOUth have the POWER!
This year’s One World Week theme is power. Understanding power in youth work is vital for the development of young people as they navigate their lives and society. One of the core values of youth work is empowerment.
Below you’ll find information on last year’s One World Week to give you a flavour of what’s in store! Check back soon for all the details on this year’s events!
