My Place, Your Place, Our Place

My Place, Your Place, Our Place is a 3-year Erasmus funded project to support learners in four European countries to better explore their cultures and identities and to share those cultures with others, ultimately challenging prejudice and living in peace together. During the project, the WCIA will be working with partners to develop teaching and learning resources to deepen cultural exchange with critical thinking and problem solving skills embedded throughout. Resources will explore cultural exchange activities that can be done through e-twinning as well as exchange visits.

Third Sector Partnership Council


The Welsh Centre for International Affairs represents the International Sector on the Third Sector Partnership Council.

Our policy focus at the moment is:


  • A Values-based approach in the draft International Strategy for Wales
  • Global citizenship in the new Curriculum for Wales
  • The Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, in particular, Globally Responsible Wales
  • The impact of Brexit on the international sector


If you would like to get involved in policy responses on these issues, please contact

We have a number of meetings for different parts of the sector, a Slack channel to discuss policy developments and we also work collaboratively on policy responses on Google Docs.

The main purpose of the Third Sector Partnership Council is to make sure that the principles set out in the Third Sector Scheme are put into practice. It also provides an opportunity for the sector to raise issues of interest or concern. It generally does not discuss issues that relate to only one area of interest (these can be taken up through biannual ministerial meetings) and as a national body it is concerned with issues affecting all of Wales.


Hub Cymru Africa


Hub Cymru Africa is a partnership supporting the Wales Africa Community, bringing together the work of the Wales for Africa Health Links Network, the Sub Saharan Advisory Panel, Fair Trade Wales and the Welsh Council for Voluntary Action.

We represent the International Development sector in Wales. Hub Cymru Africa is supported by the Welsh Government and is hosted by the Welsh Centre for International Affairs at the Temple of Peace in Cardiff.


Wales for Peace


Our vision…

To inspire a new generation of internationalists through learning from Wales’ peace heritage… the individuals, communities and movements who have championed Wales’ peacebuilding role in the world, from the First World War to today.

Why ‘Wales for Peace’?

In 1922, the very first Message of Peace and Goodwill was broadcast by the children of Wales to the rest of the world. It contained a straightforward wish – a world where there is:
“no need for any of us, as we grow older, to show our pride for the country in which we were born by going out to hate and to kill one another”

Today, the horrors of war are still at the forefront of people’s minds, from the centenary commemorations of the First World War to the devastating conflicts in Syria and elsewhere. The children of Wales have yet to see their wish fulfilled, and the pursuit of peace has continued to be an important part of the nation’s story in the last 100 years. Our project, Cymru dros Heddwch / Wales for Peace, will shed light on this story, addressing one previously unanswered question:

In the 100 years since World War 1, how has Wales contributed to the search for peace?

Working with our experienced partners, schools and youth groups groups, and volunteers throughout Wales, we will support local communities to explore their heritage. Our travelling exhibitions will bring together elements from the whole project, as we seek to tell the story of Wales and peace from 1914 to the present day.
