Tax training - Dundee

Sunday 22 March, afternoon (tbc)
DCA, 152 Nethergate, Dundee, DD1 4DY

Every year developing countries lose an estimated US$160 billion a year from corporate tax dodging, and billions are lost from the UK too.

This is money which could be spent on tackling poverty. Over the next six months we’ve got a real opportunity to do something about that.

This special training workshop will give a sneak preview of the next stage of our campaign to get tough on tax dodgers which is launching soon.

We'll update participants on Christian Aid and Oxfam's tax campaigns and help you to share and learn new skills for lobbying governments on this issue.

The session in Dundee will follow an inspirational film, in conjunction with Take One Action.

For more information, email Diane Green, Christian Aid Scotland Campaigns Officer, or call her on 0141 241 6136.
