This nine week participatory evening course aims to equip participants with the skills and methodologies to work effectively with groups on global development and social justice issues. Sessions include facilitation skills, using images and messages effectively, planning and evaluating activities, and taking action for global justice. This course is open to anyone with an interest in educating or raising awareness about development and inequality, including but not limited to youth workers, teachers, and those working in group settings.
Development Education is about increasing people's awareness and understanding of global issues and the interdependence of different countries and parts of the world in relation to these issues. In particular, it is about what sustains under-development and what is needed to reach and sustain more equal development. It is an education based on reflection, analysis, and action at local and global level.
