Development Education is the study of global justice issues and how they interlink with our everyday lives.
The world we live in is unequal, rapidly changing and interdependent. Development Education teaches its students to get to the heart of some of the most significant issues of our time and to challenge them.
By understanding the world we live in, we can transform the social, cultural, political and economic pillars of our society for the better. Development Education empowers us to take action for a more just society and a more sustainable planet, making us global citizens.
Aidlink is a founding member of developmenteducation.ie, an online hub of resources for all things development education.
It offers resources to stimulate debate and discussion about the issues and challenges we face and which encourage us to make decisions about the type of world we need and want to create.
It is a place for primary and post-primary teachers, youth workers, students, adult and community workers and those with an interest in development, sustainability and human rights.
The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are “the world’s best plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030.”
