AidEx will be taking place in Brussels this year on 17-18th November. In the lead up to the event, we will be running a series of webinar sessions.

The next webinar in the AidEx webinar series takes place on 29th June at 1pm UK time. The topic for this webinar is: Aspects of rural education in less developed communities

Rural education, a global need, is addressed in different ways. The role of education in development is widely understood; but the methods of delivery and challenges of an urban/industrial education system as compared to a rural setting are as varied as the results.

This webinar, by looking at very different approaches to enhancing the opportunities of rural children, will invite discussion and awareness of alternatives in achieving a common goal of opportunities for the rural young.

Webinar 3

The third webinar in the AidEx webinar series took place on 15th June at 1pm UK time. The topic for this webinar was: Demystifying Impact Measurement.

As a recent Harvard Business Review article said, “Reporting is not a proxy for progress. Measurement is often nonstandard, incomplete, imprecise, and misleading”. In this panel organized by Amani Institute, key experts in the social sector will discuss what is really worth measuring and how you can ensure you are evaluating your steps in changing the world correctly while building your social impact career.

Webinar 2

The second webinar in the series was focused on: 'Development and Gender advancement through social enterprises: cross-continental comparisons'.

Social enterprises could form the backbone of the transition from donation-dependent societies to self-supporting societies; a transition all the more urgently necessary in the context of declining aid and donations, in the current Covid-19 reality.

This webinar will compare and contrast the similarities of needs and solutions in different societies, and highlight the impacts achievable by enabling people, particularly women, through sustainable social enterprises.

 webinar 1

 The first webinar took place on 27th April. The topic for this webinar was: Aspects of host country impacts from accepting refugees - a Colombian Experience.

Colombia, newly amongst the World's 20 most vulnerable countries (per International Rescue Committee 2021 assessment), after many years of readily absorbing millions of refugees and displaced people from Venezuela, has received scant international recognition or financial support - to the significant disadvantage of its own people, already long-suffering. This webinar will consider the impacts of the continuing crisis upon the lives of the most impacted.
