U of Warwick Hosts Development Summit

Join Beatrice Lindstrom and 30+ speakers in the UK for a 3-day summit.


The summit is the largest student-run international development conference in the United Kingdom. Co-president of the summit, Stephanie Ifayemi, stated: “WIDS this year promises to be the most exciting and multidisciplinary summit yet! If you are interested in international development, or finding solutions to the world’s most pressing issues, we have talks from over 30 speakers, with chances to network during the day and at our wine reception (with exceptional canapé selections), attend seminar sessions and speak to our partner organisations.”

She added that over the weekend there will be talks from some of the world’s leading development thinkers and specialists, as well as discussions, panel debates and workshops. She further commented: “This year we want to create an engaging platform, encouraging innovative discussion and ideas. We hope to engage, inspire and inform the next generation of development hopefuls!”

The talks will cater to a variety of interests, whether that is setting up your own business, standing up for child rights, discussing political conflict in the Middle East or trying to expand the impact of healthcare in Africa.
