Transcript of Introduction to the WCIA

A charity launched in 1973, based in the Temple of Peace and Health in Cardiff but covering the whole of Wales.
So what does the WCIA do?
Inspiring people in Wales to learn and act on global issues...
Examples include debating, Model UN, teacher training, Welsh Bac support and philosophy for children. We're also part of a European Project, Global STEPS, to recognise skills people develop in global citizenship volunteering outside of formal education
So everyone in Wales contributes to creating a fairer, more peaceful world
We do various kinds of
public events
to give people a chance to find out more about the issues that matter to them and to take action. For example:

Volunteers are involved in designing and delivering our events.

Meet the team
We work with young people to help them to think critically about and act on global issues. Much of this work is done in schools by supporting global education - usually under the CEWC brand
Hub Cymru Africa supports links between Wales and Africa, and Fair Trade activities in Wales. It does this through:
A grants programme
Capacity building

This is a partnership project with Fair Trade Wales, Sub Saharan Advisory Panel, Wales for Africa Health Links Network and WVCA

Running and hosting innovative projects including...
Wales for Peace
This four-year project will explore one key question:

In the 100 years since the First World War, how has Wales contributed to the search for peace?
The trustees are responsible for overall governance but delegate most of the day to day running and work of the charity to the staff team.
