Welcome to Liverpool World Centre
Liverpool World Centre (LWC) exists to make world issues relevant to the lives of young people. We do this by working with communities, teachers, educators, schools, charities, businesses and pupils across the region and beyond.

APRIL NEWS: The LWC office is a pretty hectic place this month, with the national Global Learning Programme coming towards its end, and our 3 EU projects in full swing – Jason’s leading on Get Up & Goals, Andrea is managing the Intercap project, and Karen is off to Budapest at the beginning of May as part of the P4CE project. Head to our projects pages to find out more, or contact us if you are a school or other organisation who would like to be involved in our transnational work!

FEBRUARY NEWS: For Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 from the 26th February – 11th March, we are asking you to ‘Come on in’ to Fairtrade to stand with farmers and close the door on exploitation through organising a Fairtrade event or lesson. We have lots of educational resources available to download from our Schools website, such as Samuel’s Fairtrade Story which gives children the chance to experience what life is like for a Kenyan coffee farmer through an immersive 360 video and supporting lesson plans.
Alongside this, we have special Event Packs which contain everything you need to put on a Fortnight event such as posters, leaflets and stickers – if you are interested in ordering these in bulk for distribution to schools in your area then please do let us know.
COUNTER NARRATIVES: As promised, this short film shows some of our work of using simple technologies and processes to create localised counter narratives that challenge extremist views…
