[OPIRG-EVENTS] Oxfam Canada (Ottawa) Workshops on Development Issues
A Developing World
Workshops on Development Issues
Since the spring of 1986, the Ottawa Local Committee of Oxfam Canada has
proudly offered courses to the public that provide an introduction to the
issues involved in international development. Throughout the history of the
course, we have covered a wide range of topics from the basics of food and
water to complex issues such as globalization. The workshops use a "popular
education" style that encourages active involvement of the participants.
After 15 years, we are still able to offer the course to the public at the
same price as we charged in 1986: $40 for employed people for the complete
series, and a reduced price of $20 for students/unwaged individuals. For
this price, we are able to offer 8 weeks of enjoyable learning. The
workshops will be held Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the
Saint Paul University, 223 Main Street in Ottawa. The topics we will be
covering this year are:
October 4 What is Development (registration at 6:30 p.m)
October 11 Corporate Responsibility
October 18 Education
October 25 Debt and Structural Adjustment
November 1 Water
November 8 Technology / the Digital Divide
November 15 Africa
November 22 The Business of Development and You.
