International Development at #Lab10 Conference – Tuesday 28th

It’s an even earlier start on Tuesday morning, with the International Breakfast: Europe in the World: Actions to Match Ambitions at 8.30am in Manchester Central, Charter 3. Given the importance of the EU in setting trade, development and environment policy, we’ll be listening with interest (while nibbling away on a croissant!).

Then nothing until the evening, when if you’re a fan of Rum Cocktails, we recommend Cuba – Still a beacon for change? at Bar38 at 5.30pm.

If you’re not, you’re still spoilt for choice.

At 5.45pm, Teafund and CAFOD are joined by Stephen Timms MP to ask Wellbeing and Development: Are we measuring what matters? At the Friends Meeting House on Mount Street.

Just before that at 5.30pm, but at the Radisson Hotel, Pankhurst. Douglas Alexander MP will be speaking alongside representatives from Coca Cola on From poverty to prosperity: Can big business really do good in poor countries?

Presumably next door at Radisson Hotel – Peel (also at 5.30pm) the experts from the Institute of Development Studies will be asking Where did all the aid go? Seven lessons for effective development

Still don’t know what to do?

How about joining UNICEF, Christian Aid and Baroness Kinnock to ask Is Climate Change the Global Justice Cause of the Century? 6pm at Climate Clinic @The Cube


At 6.15pm join Compass to ask Pursuing an Ethical Foreign Policy – Should civil society have a role? (Renaissance Hotel, Vasari)
