- On Tuesday 21st March, the Welsh Centre for International Affairs and Hub Cymru Africa were very pleased to welcome Gareth Owen, humanitarian director for Save the Children, to the Temple of Peace. Gareth gave two talks on the evening: one on careers in humanitarian work and international development, and one on the crisis in Syria and its impact on children there.
- There was a great turnout for Gareth's first talk as he told us about his own career in humanitarian work.
- He also took questions from the audience and gave some advice for anyone thinking about a career in international development.

- Gareth delivered his second talk to a packed-out marble hall.
- Some extremely thought-provoking points were raised.
