Welcome to the UK's Largest Student-Run Development Summit!

This year, the Warwick International Development Society (WIDS) is proud to present the 9th annual summit: The Warwick Development Summit.

The 2014 Summit will be held at Zeeman Building (Maths & Stats) in MS.02 and will take place over the weekend of Fri 21st Nov, starting at 6pm and concluding on Sun 23rd Nov at 6pm.

This year's theme is: Development Through the Lens of Diversity. The approach we are taking this year is very much multidisciplinary as we demonstrate through our summit the way in which development is applicable to everyone- no matter what your background or discipline is.

Whether you come from the Arts & Humanities, the Social Sciences or Sciences, we warmly invite you to attend our event and embrace the diverse perspectives we have to offer. By attending this summit, we hope that you will engage with our academics, practitioners and professionals in finding solutions to issues in the post-2015 era. 

Do also join us for the pre-Summit party held at SAINTS Nightclub on Fri 14th Nov which will be appropriately masquerade themed.
