International Development Week – February 4 to 10, 2024

February 4 - February 10

Let’s Continue to #GoForTheGoals 
International Development Week (IDW) is an annual event held the first full week of February, supporting international development priorities while shining a light on important contributions made by Canadians at home and abroad. IDW will be taking place February 4-10, 2024, and will include many events—in person, virtually, and hybrid—organized by Canadian civil society organizations, post-secondary institutions, Global Affairs Canada, and others.

IDW 2024 will highlight the key role of youth in shaping our global future. IDW will also emphasize the voices of the Global South and communities with an interest in international development in a particular country or region, the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, as well as gender equality and women and girls.

Building on the success of previous editions, IDW 2024 calls Canadians to #GoForTheGoals to support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will highlight Canadian contributions in the following key areas each day of the week:

– Partnerships
– Gender equality
– Education
– Health
– Climate Action

IDW 2024 also emphasizes the key role of youth in shaping our global future, in particular support for youth education leading to meaningful employment. By investing in youth, we cultivate a generation empowered to build a more inclusive, prosperous and sustainable world. Join us in this journey under the hashtags #IDW2024 and #GoForTheGoals!
