The PRME UKI Chapter is happy to publicise details of an event you may be interested in if you think it likely you will be able to travel abroad by the Autumn. Please note this is not a PRME UKI Chapter event.
Our WG Update April 2020 shows that despite observing physical distancing measures and recommendations, it did not prevent us from continuing our professional work, communication and collaboration, including our collective engagement with the broad issue of poverty and the SDGs.
