Panel discussion: Volunteering, learning & power

On 19 January, the RYVU team was invited by the UNESCO Chair in Adult Literacy & Learning for Social Transformation, at the university of University of East Anglia, to take part on a wider Seminar Series on Education and Development focused on ‘Learning, Social Movements and Collective Action’.

Professor Matt Baillie Smith’s talk was on the theme “Volunteering, learning & power: the experiences of young refugees in Uganda”. In this activity, he explored what volunteering means for refugee youth in Uganda, how learning happens (or not) in their experiences, and the forms of learning that emerge through and against their volunteer work.

There was an opportunity for active discussion with participants, and sharing of RYVU early findings not only during the panel presentation, but also in the informal conversations that followed it.
