What We Do


IDEA’s communication focuses on connecting with our membership and wider audiences. We share information about IDEA’s work, Development Education, and what’s happening in the sector at an Irish and international level. We also work to build awareness and be a strong voice for Development Education and global citizenship with wider audiences in Ireland.

We do this in a variety of ways including:


The IDEA E-Circular is published every second Thursday. It provides a concise and accessible overview of news and events from IDEA and our members, along with relevant news & events in Ireland and internationally, the latest job and funding opportunities, and top resources and reads.
