Join us for the online launch of Education, Action, Solidarity, NOW! An Audit of Development Education and Global Citizenship Education Resources in Ireland 2017-2020.
“The third audit of development education and global citizenship education resources in Ireland draws on resources identified during the four-year period 2017 – 2020. A number of key events, updates and contexts in development and education have impacted on the style, content and focus areas of resource developments. Taken together, these events paint a picture of huge change, incremental progress and hostility towards the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. It has also been an era of pushback and resistance underwritten by regular access to and engagement from development education (DE) practitioners and programmes.”
What does the footprint of 4 years of learning resources during the first trimester of the Sustainable Development Goals agenda look like?
What are the gaps, trends and findings from the 202 resource projects included? What themes dominated? …or did not? What has been the impact of trends such as gamification and the ‘Greta Effect’?
Join the authors for a lunchtime launch of the third study of development education and global citizenship education resources in Ireland launching this timely new baseline and discussing the 9 recommendations in formal and non-formal education in Ireland.
