AFW seeks new trustees

We are seeking new trustees who share our passion for creating a fairer world

AFW is a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC014585), with the purpose of educating and enabling people in the North East of Scotland to take action to create a fairer world.

AFW incorporates the Montgomery Development Education Centre (MDEC), which was set up in 1983 to focus on developing and delivering Global Citizenship Education within both the formal and non-formal education sectors.

Please see our website for more details.

The need for new trustees

We have nine trustees currently and, whilst this provides an adequate complement of people with a good range of skills and interests, we wish to strengthen the team with a few more skilled, committed people who share our ethos of working together to create a fairer world.

We are particularly keen to hear from those with expertise in any of these areas:

  • Business planning and strategy
  • Financial management
  • Recruitment and HR procedures
  • Governance and compliance (including Data Protection)
  • Digital systems and technology
  • Communications
  • Chairing and leadership

We are happy to provide more details of the skills we are seeking, our trustee recruitment process and general information about our organisation and its activities – please email us at

If you wish to be considered as a trustee for Aberdeen for a World, please email our Chair, Dr Nigel Dower, at, sending your CV and a covering note explaining your interest in our work.

We look forward to hearing from you!
