Ethical Travel and Volunteering

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 at 10:00

United Kingdom


Compass- Ethical - Travel and Volunteering.

In association with Born Free and Blood Lions.

Are  you looking to volunteer abroad this year or may be looking for that great safari adventure in Africa?

This event offers advice & information for people who are interested in international volunteering and want to make sure that what they do is of value to themselves and the people they work with. There are now loads of ways to get involved in international volunteering. You might be taking a gap year after school, or a career brake from your job, you might have been given the chance to have a sabbatical or you might have retired and be looking for new adventures. Whether you have a few weeks or a few years there are now loads of organisations that will help you find a volunteer programme.

But some of these programmes are much better than others. While volunteers intentions are nearly always good, this does not mean that all volunteer prorgammes are good. Indeed there are some programmes, out there that can be said to do more harm than good.

On the day there will be speakers such as Will Travers OBE from The Born Free Organisation along with the screening of the documentary Blood Lions plus representatives from ethical volunteer agencies and  projects.

The day is set to empower you with knowledge to help you make informed decisions...

Just Walk

Just Walk is Across the Divide’s own charity challenge which allows individuals to raise money for the charity of their choice.

Just Walk starts and finishes from the dramatic backdrop of Goodwood Racecourse, in Chichester, West Sussex. All of the routes are circular, and take on the rolling hills and landscape of the West Sussex Countryside including sections of the South Downs National Trail on most routes.

Taking place on: 13th May 2017

The Big Cat Nap 2017

3rd – 9th July

The Big Cat Nap highlights the plight of some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered animals through a range of sleep-themed activities. Why not organize a ‘wear pyjamas to work or school day’ and collect cash from those who take part? Or try a sponsored sleep-in? Male lions sleep for up to 23 hours a day, so you’ll be in good company!

If that sounds a bit too energetic, you could take a sleepy pet selfie (human involvement optional) and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #BigCatNap. Born Free will choose a winner which will be used to promote the following year’s event.
