The Venue with a Heart: Our Ethos
When you hold your event at the Temple of Peace, all the profits go to the charity that runs the venue, the Welsh Centre for International Affairs (the WCIA). The WCIA's vision is that everyone in Wales contributes to creating a fairer and more peaceful world. We do this by inspiring learning and action on global issues through delivering high quality global education, promoting peace and human rights and supporting international development from Wales.
Our core values, of protecting human rights, promoting peace and sustainability and supporting everyone in Wales to play their role as global citizens, are reflected in how we run the venue. We carefully source our suppliers, looking for those who take their responsibilities to the environment seriously and who make a positive contribution to the communities around them. We work with caterers who use fairly traded or locally sourced produce and who pay their staff the living wage.
The Temple of Peace is home to a total of seven charitable organisations:
The Welsh Centre for International Affairs delivers global learning that prepares Wales for our shared futures and inspires global action in communities and organisations across Wales.
Gorwel is a Welsh think tank that seeks to encourage innovative thinking and creativity from across the political spectrum, playing a role in international culture, international relations, business and other assorted ideas and notions for public discussion in Wales.
Fair trade Wales
Fair Trade Wales aims to support, grow and promote the Fair Trade movement in Wales.
In mid 2009 a number of African Diasporas in Wales met to consider how they might collectively advance their common interest in International development by supporting work carried out by other Welsh international development organizations. The Sub Saharan Africa Advisory Panel (SSAP) was born.
UNA Exchange is a Cardiff-based international volunteering charity that supports Future Generations Well-being Goals across Wales and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals worldwide. The organisation is driven by the mission of a globally responsible Wales.
Size of Wales
Size of Wales encourages the people of Wales to help tackle climate change by taking simple positive actions. We work with schools and businesses to raise funds for forests and raise awareness of the importance of forests in tackling climate change.
