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 like 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 local supporters, most of which are free to attend.

Clients include The British Council, Hastings Borough Council, Rother District Council, University of Brighton, Hastings Storytelling Festival, Big Local, Streets of Rother Festival, St. Leonards Festival and many more.

We also produce Journeys Dance Festival, our own annual event.

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 with us we’d love to hear from you at office@18hours.org.uk
