The Two Towns One World project had two main strands

  • Locally in the Hay-on-Wye area with the Gwernfed cluster of schools
  • Nationally in Wales through a series of workshops and conferences

The scope of the work was enhanced through partnership with other initiatives on the themes ‘Unpacking Africa’ and ‘Debating Development’. A conference in Llandrindod Wells in November 2013 brought the strands of work together and provided the main narrative of this publication.

The resource is full of photos, animations, useful narrative and project examples/guides.
