What is One World Week?

One World Week is a Development Education Charity. Each year, "The Week" is an opportunity for people from diverse backgrounds to come together to learn about global justice, to spread that learning and to use it to take action for justice locally and globally.

Could you organise an event?

OWW in 2013 asks you to support or organise events that enable us to consider whether we:
• have had more than enough of consumer culture getting in the way of 
relationships with others in our communities and across the globe?
• have had more than enough of being defined by what we possess?
• have had more than enough of seeing our planet irrevocably consumed?
• take more than enough ourselves?
