Transcript of Introduction to the WCIA
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
to give people a chance to find out more about the issues that matter to them and to take action. For example:
This year, some of our events will be run by volunteers as part of a project funded by the Players of the People's Postcode Lottery

Meet the team

Hub Cymru Africa supports links between Wales and Africa, and Fair Trade activities in Wales. It does this through:
A grants programme
This is a partnership project with Fair Trade Wales, Sub Saharan Advisory Panel, Wales for Africa Health Links Network and WVCA

Wales for Peace
