King's College Conference & Kottu!

One day, two events, three great organisations! 

Samutthana and UK Sri Lanka Trauma Group (UK-SLTG) are commemorating two decades of life-changing work with an interactive conference at King's College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and we're hosting the afterparty! 


Post-Conflict Reconciliation Conference

We’re thrilled to spread the news that UK-SLTG are hosting a conference in partnership with King's College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience to commemorate their 20th anniversary! This conference, which aims to explore diverse examples of reconciliation across the world, promises to be a unique educational experience including talks and interactive workshops, led by international psychologists and psychiatrists, exploring themes of policy and justice as well as real life examples of reconciliation in action. 

Our partnership with Samutthana and UK-SLTG has been going strong for five brilliant years and their guidance and knowledge has helped to shape our organisation. The training and support they provide has enabled our volunteer teams to achieve fantastic things in Sri Lanka and we’re sure this conference will not only be interesting, but essential for anyone hoping to work with post-conflict communities. 

We’re very much looking forward to this event and wanted to invite you to come along as well. Whether you’ve been on our team before or not you’re very welcome to attend and as you’re a SLV.Global friend you’re eligible for a 65% discount on tickets! 

SLV.Global Afterparty

After the conference we’re hosting an afterparty to commemorate our five-year partnership with Samutthana and UK-SLTG and you’re invited!

We love a good party and what better reason to throw one than to say “thank you” to our incredible partners who have helped to support and train our volunteer teams over the past five years. We know nothing shows gratitude quite like a big plate of kottu roti, so that’s what we’re serving! Join us after the conference in the heart of Peckham where we, along with Samutthana Psychologist and mentor to our volunteers, Nivendra, will be jamming like we’re back in Unawatuna at the Happy Banana.

Join us for one event or for both. We look forward to seeing you next month!
