This year International Development Week (February 5th to 11th) puts the spotlight on our collective efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and many WUSC leaders explore the theme of “Putting our purchasing power to use for people and planet” through the Uniterra One World ethical consumption campaign.
