Series 1

INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY. Its changing face: how to harness the best from the new equality and social justice movements?

September 17 2020, 3pm CET

Language: English (French simultaneous interpretation).

During the last 30 years, globalisation has brought new social, environmental and economic realities worldwide. Traditional forms of solidarity have evolved too and new movements advocate to place the idea of human solidarity on the agenda of global politics. These new forms of solidarity include long and short term movements that strive for greater equality and social justice. Recently, in the context of the COVID-19 global pandemic and in response to it, we are witnessing a tipping point of these new forms of international solidarity. This is indeed the right time to come together and take action to support the urgent need for solidarity.

Moderated by Cathie Burton and with an introduction by Ambassador Manuel Montobbio, this debate opened a conversation with three experts: Ms Avril Benoit, Mr Giuseppe Palmisano and Dr Raúl Acosta, for the first-ever #SOLIDACTION campaign webinar.

INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY. Which paths to guarantee long lasting changes?

November 19 2020, 3pm CET

Language: Bilingual (french-english / simultaneous interpretation in both languages).

Central to the #SolidAction campaign is the understanding that one powerful way to ensure international solidarity is to develop resilient and critical societies of self-motivated and well-informed citizens; reason why this second series’ webinar will merge with another flagship initiative of the North-South Centre: the Global Education Week. The webinar will be one of the multitude of activities that the North-South Centre and the Global Education Network promote from the 16 to the 22 of November to valorise global education and global citizenship education.

Moderated by Cathie Burton, this interactive debate will open a conversation with three audiovisual, media literacy and civic engagement experts.
