Abstract: Ten Days for World Development, a development education initiative sponsored by the major Canadian churches, conducts an annual country-wide program focussing on selected issues relating to world justice."Making a Living" has been its major theme for the past two years. Its 1982 program concentrates on Nicaragua, Brazil and Zimbabwe, while it continues examinations of issues involved in making a living.
Early Februaryof each year is designated as Ten Days for World Development. It is a time for congregations to study the Ten Days material which is distributed each fall. Local ecumenical committees and other agencies and groups working in development education take appropriate action in solidarity with the theme. Resource people, usually from the Third World, visit and speak in many Canadian communities to exchange information and ideas.
Visitors in 1982 included Xavier Gorostiaga, S.J., formerly of Nicaragua's Planning Ministry.
Ten Days has recently started a "Newsletter" which will be published three times a year.
Information about regional representatives and local committees can be obtained from the above address.
