About

6 Billion Ways is a coalition of campaigners on local and global justice issues, aiming to build a broad movement for progressive change

 

 

6 Billion Ways started life as a one-off event in February 2009, aimed at informing and mobilising a wide range of people on local and global justice issues. We wanted to go beyond single issues and contribute to building a broad movement for progressive change. The event was a huge success, so two years later, we did it again. Like the first time, the 2011 event included space for education, organising and the arts, but even more people turned up – 1,700 in total.

Now we’re in transition; from being all about a big event every two years to a more ongoing form of collaboration, education and movement building. If you have suggestions or enquiries, email us: info@6billionways.org.uk

Jubilee Debt Campaign is part of a global movement calling for 100% cancellation of unpayable and illegitimate poor country debts, without harmful conditions attached. We are working for a fairer international system of borrowing and lending, where debt is not an instrument of control for the rich, and further unjust debts cannot build up in the future.
