Abstract:  UNISPHERE was formed in 1976 in Medicine Hat, Alberta, to increase public awareness of links between Albertans and people of the Third World. Initially, its programme focussed on the annual Ten Days for World Development, an inter-church sponsored educational project. However, since 1977, it has expanded its work to include schools, service clubs, community groups, and individuals.

UNISPHERE offers to the public a wide range of educational and information aids and activities including films, slides, and magazines, and offers speakers and workshops on international development issues.

UNISPHERE works closely with the Chilean community in Medicine Hat as well as other learner centres in Alberta. It was also involved in the establishment of a local Amnesty International group recently.

This abstract was published in the Connexions Digest in 1982.
