International Development Week 2022

International Development Week (IDW) is an opportunity to explore how Canada and Canadians are making a difference around the world!

International Development Week (IDW) is an annual initiative held during the first week of February since 1991 to engage Canadians on global issues. This uniquely Canadian tradition offers an opportunity to acknowledge Canadian contributions to poverty reduction and international humanitarian assistance in the developing world.

Since 1991, IDW has taken place during the first full week of February. This year, it will take place from February 6 to 12, 2022.

Bow Valley College will join the world in celebrating IDW with a full week of events to show the significant contribution that international education makes to our social, economic, and cultural well-being and to support Canada’s ongoing efforts to engage on the international stage. However, as COVID-19 threatens a decade of global progress in building a peaceful, just, inclusive, clean, resilient, and prosperous world for everyone, it has also demonstrated how connected we really are. That is why the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda are more important than ever.

This year, IDW focuses on five themes: Gender equality, Health, Economic resilience, Education, and Climate action; all of which align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda (SDGs 5, 3, 8, 4, and 13).

AGENDA | FEBRUARY 8-10, 2022
DAY 1
Creating Global Leaders in an Interconnected World
Tuesday, February 8
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Our local and global communities no longer look or operate the same way. Our interconnected realities generate new challenges, and they require innovative ways of thinking.

Indigenous Realities in Response to Development Work
Wednesday, February 9
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Join us for a fireside chat with Crystal Manyfingers, discussing the challenges and opportunities of Indigenous communities in Canada, seven years after the introduction of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Crystal Manyfingers is a Teaching and Learning Consultant for Curriculum, Indigenization, and Decolonization at Bow Valley College. She was recognized with a Faculty Award in February 2020. She is a Blackfoot (Kainaiki) woman, from the Kainani (Blood) First Nation in southern Alberta.

DAY 3
Divisibility: International Development
Thursday, February 10
12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Tahira Ebrahim joins Diversibility hosts Amy Spark, Sustainability Coordinator, and Justin Hardjowirogo, Intercultural Centre Engagement Officer for a conversation about international development. What is development? How can we amplify marginalized voices that are impacted in this work? How can our own identities and realities shape development work as a personal priority?
