IDEA's members come from different regions of the island of Ireland. They work in different sectors of society and use a wide variety of tools drawn from education and development practices to engage the Irish public in Development Education. What they all share is the vision that their work will contribute to transforming the social, cultural, economic and political structures of the world and the fabric of our society in order to create a more just and equal future for all. IDEA’s aim is to support this diversity.
Members participate in Working or Task Groups to progress aspects of IDEA’s work that is of interest to them.
IDEA’s Board of Directors, our National Council, is elected every year by members at our Annual General Meeting. Every full organisational or individual member is entitled to vote and to be on the National Council.
