Practical Action

As a volunteer speaker your support connects us to even more support. Which in turn connects struggling communities to the resources they need to fight poverty.

Join us

As a speaker for Practical Action, you’ll get to decide when and where you present.

You’ll know every event you do will have a direct impact on the projects we’re running now, and in the future. We’ll also equip you with everything you need, including up-to-date resources.

Please get in touch to let us know what you are planning, if you’d like further information or if we can help in any way. Thank you for considering to support us in this way.
