“We have hugely appreciated the pro bono legal support we have accessed via TrustLaw – it has definitely increased our effectiveness and legal compliance. Lawyers have helped us develop a safeguarding policy, improve the protection of our data, and increase our knowledge of copyright requirements – all for free! I would highly recommend TrustLaw to our members and indeed any small NGO.” Jess McQuail, Think Global CEO
We held a joint webinar with TrustLaw on 18 April on how organisations can access free legal support. TrustLaw was created by the Thomson Reuters Foundation to spread the practice of pro bono to drive social change.

We were delighted to be joined by experts from The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for a free webinar on the 6 February to introduce the PISA 2018 Global Competence Framework.
The Department for Education (DFE) have stated that schools in England will not be taking the new PISA global competences tests, launched by OECD. However we felt that it was important to understand the new tests and the potential they offer.

On Monday 29th January 2018, Think Global teamed up with our partners DEED to host a free networking lunch event at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne, Dorset. This was a unique opportunity for local community groups, businesses, shops, organisations and individuals to come together to find out more about the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and what they mean for you, your organisation and those you work with.
We held activities, presentations and a focus on sharing local, national and global initiatives. We also shared resources from two Think Global projects: SUSY (promoting the social and solidarity economy, SSE) and Supply Cha!nge (‘Make supermarkets fair’).
The main focus was to network and form new local partnerships.
