Event Description

Waterford EDIC will host a series of workshops for pupils from the Ursuline School in Waterford City. The workshops will be given by Waterford One World Centre staff and will promote awareness of the problems experienced by people who live in the “undeveloped” world, e.g. Sub Saharan Africa, Latin America, etc. in relation to agriculture, urban encroachment in rural areas, disappearance of traditional lifestyles and how the European Union can help to alleviate difficulties through the best use of planned, targeted aid. A particular emphasis will be placed on “Agenda for Change”, the EU Commission’s blueprint to re-focus its development aid to ensure that it reaches those sectors and countries that need it most.

2015 is the EU Year for Development.
