Description of Work in DE

Friends of the Earth engages with young people in development education activities through environmental and green societies in colleges and with adults in community groups as well as occasional work at the secondary school level. We offer development education training opportunities focusing on the environmental aspect that we believe is a crucial part of development education. We work with groups and individuals who are possibly unfamiliar with development education in order for them to understand the concept better particularly the environmental aspect. We also engage with environmentally conscious groups and help educate them on the global dimension of the issue they are concerned with. We run a competition called Climate Champions to educate young people aged 18-30 on development education issues with an environmental aspect. We then encourage and support these young people in passing on their knowledge to others through their own development education actions.
