What We Do

Events & Resources

IDEA plays a crucial role as a networking and information hub for our members and for those outside of the sector who are interested in learning more about Development Education in Ireland. Through our events and communications we support collaboration and share information across the sector and beyond it.

Developing Development Education resources is something our members have been doing for years. There is a wealth available for practitioners or those interested in introducing Development Education into their work. Good practice has also been an area of focus for the sector with a range of good practice guidelines available for practitioners working with different groups within the sector. There are also reports and other resources available that provide an overview of that is happening in the sector at an Irish and EU wide level.


We organise training, seminars & meetings to build capacity in the following areas:


IDEA works to connect its membership and also to connect Development Education to wider audiences.
