The power of all our voices
Understanding the value of having different perspectives from all over the world is vital for RESULTS’ advocacy work. Despite the level of interconnectedness we have these days, perspectives from those who personally experience the hardships of our issue areas are often absent from debates and decisions. Irũngũ Houghton

4:15-4:45pmCreating a manifesto for optimismWorkshop

Advocating for an end to global poverty can be extremely challenging, especially in the current environment of reduced political will for international development, political instability, fewer resources due to the cut to the Official Development Assistance (ODA) budget, and increasing poverty levels in the UK. 

It can be hard to stay positive and optimistic, but we must remain critically hopeful that we can campaign for change. In this workshops, we will collectively create a manifesto for optimism.

Excluded voices: 
climate justice activists and COP26 
There were many people and voices excluded from the climate change conference ‘COP26’ in Glasgow in 2021. In this talk, we’ll hear from climate justice activists who were denied a platform at the summit, question who gets a platform and why, and consider the impact of excluding voices from such global events.Sumaiya Harunany

3-4pm“Deserving Aid”: 
Development Stereotypes and How to Break Them

Ideas about poverty and conceptions of who ‘deserves’ international aid have been entrenched in colonialism, racism, and sexism for hundreds of years. How can we break these cycles to reflect  in our  campaign efforts a development sector that is, not only inclusive, but actively works against oppressive systems?
