London Ethical Events Listings

I’ve made a habit of trying to take advantage of the excellent range of events on ethical issues that are run around London. Often I go to the ones run by local medsin branches, such as Imperial or UCL, but also other talks, rallies, films etc. run by groups from LSE to the Campaign Against Climate Change. I’ve built up quite a collection of useful links for events, and thought I should share them. I hope they’re useful!


OneWorld UK / Get involved / UK Events / Weekly events listing

Probably the most comprehensive listing of “ethical events” around. Don’t be put off by the fact that it isn’t exactly beautiful or Web 2.0!

The List, Prospect’s Guide to Lectures and Seminars

Another excellent events list, with a slightly broader remit than OneWorld’s. I recommend the magazine too..!

New Statesman - Events

The New Statesman has a slightly selective and left-wing collection of events..

LSE Public Lectures and Events - LSE

LSE is always a goldmine for finding topical, exciting and a little more controversial public lectures

Events Calendar: United Nations Association- UK

Another good general events list. It has a UN focus, but also lists events hosted by many other groups.

LSHTM Events

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine’s lectures.

The Lectures List (London)

This site lists loads of lectures, so is useful for publicising as well as finding events

RSA - Lectures

Public Lectures hosted by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. It hosts events and lectures on various things including “social change”. I discussed some of the issues on charity accountability in my recent post about Nyaya Health.

BOND - International Development Events

Provides a good picture of major events coming up in the NGO community

Overseas Development Institute - homepage

Events from the ODI, looking at the International Development community and its direction

War On Want : Events : Events Listing

Often some more direct and political events that you can take part in. And some less challenging ones, such as The World Fair, which is a good place to pick up some “ethical” presents before Christmas

NCVO - NCVO’s Campaigning Effectiveness Programme - Events

Hosts campaigning workshops

Global Health Forum

Medsin Imperial host a Global Health related talk every Tuesday


It’s also worth having a look at some of the more general events websites…


A great “Event Sharing” Web 2.0 site. At the moment a lot of the events are web related, but not exclusively so, and hopefully its use will broaden as it expands

Time Out London

You obviously can’t miss this one out!

All In London - What’s On Guide

What’s On When? - London Events

Greater London Authority - Events


Please feel free to post other good listings sites if you know them!
