Anti-Poverty Week 2010

Anti-poverty week focuses on poverty around the world, including Australia. It includes the UN’s International Anti-Poverty Day. Anti-poverty week begins this Sunday on the 17th of October and concludes on the 23rd of October.

In building a greener world, we must first tackle the inequality we face with human poverty. As the gap between the rich and the poor is becoming increasingly wider, we must work to narrow this gap and strive for balance.


 

The main aims are to:
-strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty and hardship
– encourage research, discussion and action to address these problems.

Participation has grown rapidly in recent years, with activities such as public lectures, workshops, conferences, debates, concerts, displays, sports days and media briefings being organised.

Last year, at least 1000 organisations around Australia participated in more than 400 activities during the week, with a total participation of more than 10000 people.

Everyone is very welcome to organise an activity during the week or join in something being organised by other people. The activities can be large or small, and activities at local levels are especially welcome.

The website www.antipovertyweek.org.au includes basic fact sheets, promotional material.

For more information or to list activities contact the Australian national poverty office on 1300 797 290 or at apw@antipovertyweek.org.au
