What we do

The Warwick International Development Society (WIDS: is an active society on campus, engaging students in various events throughout the year, offering exciting (all expenses paid) internship opportunities, holding regular podcast discussions highlighting the biggest issues in international development, and more. Our pinnacle event, the annual Warwick International Development Summit, is the UK's largest student-led development conference, with an aim to raise awareness and inspire debate. WIDS gives students the opportunity to directly engage in a fruitful debate and network with leaders and field workers in government, international organisations, business and NGOs. This year’s main Summit has been inspired by recent world events and will be centred on the theme The Faces of International Development: Old Ideas, New Solutions.


Featured speakers include:
