About Debt GWA

The Global Week of Action for Debt Cancellation -- taking place on October 10 to 17 -- calls for debt cancellation and addressing unsustainable and illegitimate debt.

The multiple crises of the COVID19 pandemic, the intensified economic recession, and the climate emergency has spotlighted the urgency for raising the calls for debt cancellation and addressing unsustainable and illegitimate debt. It is in this context that many movements, organizations and citizens groups are coming together for a “Global Week of Action for Debt Cancellation” on October 10 to 17. We hope to generate impact in the period leading up to and during the week and pave the way for a re-invigorated, sustained global debt movement to rise to what will even be bigger challenges in the coming years.
