Written by Katy Southall

28-29 April 2021

The Centre for Humanitarian Leadership’s 2021 Humanitarian Leadership Conference will interrogate what a genuinely transformed humanitarian system can look like based on economic, environmental and political justice for affected communities. Where the affected communities, local organisations, the business community and their national governments are the ‘humanitarians’.
Two days of panel discussions, workshops and presentations from a powerhouse of humanitarian actors from all corners of the globe will challenge and disrupt traditional perceptions of aid and the real humanitarians.

Sessions from the Trust Alliance members include:
