You are warmly invited to attend the 33rd Annual General Meeting of the One World Centre on Tuesday 21st August which is to be held in Lecture Theatre 1 (LT1) on the ground floor of the Dalhousie Building on University of Dundee’s main campus. Staff and committee members will be welcoming attendees from 5.15pm with a group photo planned before the talk at 5.30pm.
This year we are very fortunate to have Dr. Husam AlWaer, Senior Lecturer at the University of Dundee, joining us to talk about his research on the urbanism of refugee camps. Often considered as temporary places built in response to a crisis, the truth is that these camps exist for years, and Dr. AlWaer will show that when refugees can make changes to their space, they can make changes to their lives.
The AGM is built around the idea that everyone has a story, and along with Dr. AlWaer, One World Centre will celebrate the differences that can be made by sharing stories; stories that we hear and stories we are a part of. With this in mind, we will hold a collection on behalf of Lend With Care - www.lendwithcare.org - which provides access to sustainable funds and allows recipients to change their own story.
From 6.30pm there will be refreshments and information about One World World Centre, including Annual Reports. Membership forms and Nomination forms for the Management Committee will be available throughout the evening.
