Organising an event is a fantastic way to get involved in Global Week.

Highlight research, hold a seminar or plan a performance. There are no restrictions on the size or concept of your event and we welcome creative ideas. As long as your event meets the key criteria of having an international aspect and being inclusive, it could be accepted as part of the Durham Global Week programme. 

If you're already planning an event with a global focus, why not schedule it between Saturday 24 February and Sunday 3 March 2024 and let us promote it as part of Global Week to maximise its impact? 

Simply complete the brief online form to tell us about your event and how it meets the criteria detailed below.

Once Events are approved for inclusion in the Programme, we'll send you a Toolkit to help you organise and promote it as part of Global Week.
