International Day to End Poverty 2022

Every year on October 17, people worldwide commemorate the International Day to End Poverty. This year’s theme is Dignity for all in practice: The commitments we make together for social justice, peace and the planet.

International Day to End Poverty 2022

The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17 October 1987. The commemoration of this day reflects the willingness of people living in poverty to use their expertise to contribute to the eradication of poverty. People of all backgrounds gather every year on 17 October to renew their commitment and show solidarity.

For October 17th 2022, we continued to ‘Light up the UK map’ to showcase all of the amazing activities taking place for #IDEP2021.

Challenge Poverty Week

The APLE Collective are taking part in Challenge Poverty Week, which is an opportunity for voices that are often ignored to be heard loud and clear. It’s a chance to focus on the need to tackle poverty and show the immense difference we could make to our society if we do.

“The 17th of October is especially significant because it emphasises the importance of understanding the perspectives of those who have lived through adversity in order to develop effective social change.”
