One World Week logo

Begins on the Sunday of the week of 24 October (UN Day) every year: A week of awareness and action on issues such as injustice, the environment and poverty.

Established in 1978, One World Week seeks to raise awareness of global issues and to encourage the community to take action locally to change things which are unjust, that damage the environment and that cause poverty. The week also seeks to celebrate being part of a diverse but interconnected world. United Nations Day (24 October) always falls in One World Week.

The One World Week website¬†gives background information about each year’s different theme. In 2018 One World Week celebrates its 40th anniversary. You can find teaching resources at www.oneworldweek.org/resources

You can also check out the many resources listed in our database on the topic of interdependence.
