Aurora Dialogues: Localizing Impact
The Dialogues will focus on Aurora’s unique approach to localizing impact and how this fits into the overall humanitarian architecture, the milestones achieved since Aurora’s inception, and the goals for the road ahead. All Aurora’s projects hinge on localization, harnessing knowledge, expertise and resources of local actors and empowering them to create lasting social change.
Humanitarianism in Education Forum
Humanitarianism in Education Conference will focus on the role education plays in shaping socially responsible individuals. The Conference will start with the Young Aurora Final Projects Presentations and will be followed by Aurora Dialogues.
Young Aurora is a partnership between the Aurora Humanitarian Initiative, United World Colleges (UWC), Scholae Mundi and Teach for All. It provides an opportunity for UWC schools and colleges to design projects that will drive positive change in the community through humanitarian solutions. The winning team will be awarded $4,000 to implement their project. Now in its third year, 17 schools and colleges have participated in the Young Aurora Project to date.
Aurora Dialogues aim to shine a light on the people working to address today’s global humanitarian challenges in a real and substantial manner and identify ideas that will deliver tangible change. Now in their fourth year, the Dialogues are hosted around the world. This year, the Dialogues in Dilijan will focus on the importance of education in creating future humanitarians.
