A Better Life For Refugees

Imagine starting a new life in a foreign land; leaving behind family, your community and all that you know – even your own language. We are not talking about a planned move, but having no choice to travel to a different world. This is the journey that refugees are on - in search of a better life; away from war and daily persecution.

World Oceans Day 2019

World Oceans Day takes place on June 8th and it can’t come sooner. Our precious oceans are under threat. There is a feeling of global urgency to protect the oceans that provide a great source of oxygen and joy. 

Our story: The WEA North East Green Branch

The WEA North East Region Green Branch emerged in November 2011. Its genesis was rooted in evidence of interest in responding to climate change. The Region had already held three annual, and successful, World Development Day regional conferences on climate issues arranged jointly with partners including The Co-operative, Unison, Newcastle Science City and others.
