The 2020 WEA Annual Conference took place on Wednesday, September 16th.  We will update this page with slides, videos, minutes and answers to questions we did not have time to answer, over the upcoming weeks. 

Conference theme:  Active Citizenship: Shaping the Future

The Conference looked at the impact and role of volunteers and members in active citizenship and ensure that we are supporting the incredible voluntary work you do in
your local communities. In addition, there will be discussions around the wider issue of addressing the importance of active citizenship in today’s society.
