About 18 Hours

About 18 Hours

18 Hours is a not-for-profit organisation which delivers education, events and research with a focus on global citizenship and diversity

Global Education

18 Hours is the Development Education Centre (D.E.C.) for East Sussex. We work with teachers to provide them with the skills, confidence and practical approaches to incorporate active global citizenship into their schools.

Global education is an active and creative learning approach, inspiring students to become global citizens, effect social transformation and contribute to a more inclusive, peaceful, and sustainable world.

We have a growing collection of global education resources such as books, activities and artefacts to purchase or borrow.

Event Management

18 Hours works with local, national and international clients to produce affordable, sustainable, memorable, quality and accessible commercial and community events such as festivals, concerts, fairs, celebrations and cultural happenings for people of all backgrounds and ages.

Our events are funded by national and local supporters, most of which are free to attend.

Clients include Hastings Borough Council, Heart of Sidley, Rother District Council, University of Brighton, Hastings Storytelling Festival, St. Leonards Festival, University of East London, Wealden District Council, and many more.

We also produce Bexhill After Dark Journeys Festival of Dance, our own annual events.

Want to get involved?

A number of volunteers help with our events, either in the office or helping with stewarding. It’s a good way to meet new people, participate in local events, gain work experience and it looks great on your CV!

If you are interested in working or volunteering with us we’d love to hear from you at office@18hours.org.uk
