KCLID gives me hope for a better and safer future. Being part of this group of brilliant students gives me all the incentives to challenge global issues such as global warming, inequality, or racism.
KCLID is a way to raise awareness on current important subjects. As a member of the event team, I have the opportunity to invite speakers to enlighten a young community of thinkers and organize activities to get everyone involved.
Development refers to the natural progression of a people, economy or region from one stage to the next. This should provide a material benefit to individuals and society at large.
Developing is about bringing up a new perspective to the world we live in and cooperate towards it. At KCLID, I aim to learn from different views and bring possible solutions to today's injustices.
Development is a cuisine with many recipes - there is no one way to prosperity. I am part of KCLID because I believe in the power of students to collectively make a positive change.
Head of Publishing
The society offers me a space to discuss issues regarding international development with people of varying perspectives. I prioritise pursuing sustainability, alleviation of poverty, and enhancing human capabilities universally.
International development explained is the study of humanity’s future, a subject dear to my heart. With KCLIDSoc, I want to help current societal, political and environmental issues gain exposure and contribute to finding innovative solutions.
KCLID Society aim to create a community where individuals can discuss the issues of developing countries and path of development.
International Development is the process of bettering the lives of those who do not have the freedom to be able to impose change on their own.
ID is important as more people should understand and be able to debate the very nature of how we grow as a global society.
International Development focuses on improving the living conditions in countries, where big margin of the population is living in poverty. My interest for international development comes from my want to help these people and improve their living standards.
I feel it is important to facilitate discussion and raise awareness on the important issues of international development. KCLID will create a community of like minded individuals in which this can happen.
This society has the potential to spark educated discussions on the complexities and challenges facing development initiatives and hopefully can eventually foster solutions to some of these.
Development is about technocratic and sustainable approach towards the expansion of economic capacities, without compromising the freedoms and opportunities of citizens. KCLID is the best platform for everyone to raise awareness of such issues and pursue the goal of global development.
Studying and working in International Development allows us to improve local and global issues, such as poverty and environmental crises. My passion to make a difference in this world is driven by the sense of social responsibility to contribute in community development.
