What We Do

Development Education Practice

DevelopmentEducation.ie is the online hub for information, activities, learning and resource support for material on development, human rights, global justice and sustainability. The website serves a wide range of user groups in the formal and non-formal education sectors. It carried out an An Audit of Development Education Resources in Ireland 2013- 2016, providing a fully annotated catalogue of over 200 Development Education resources.
