What We Do

Promoting Global Justice

IDEA works with educators to embed a global justice perspective in all types of education. We also work with NGOs and civil society in Ireland to promote the role of education in tackling the root causes of injustice and inequality, locally and globally.

Development Education is about enabling people to create a more just and sustainable future. Global justice is a key theme within development education. IDEA believes that charity alone will not solve the global challenges of climate change, inequality and injustice. Development Education is about moving beyond charity towards a rights-based justice-focused model of development, involving the participation of all citizens from the “rich” and “poor” countries of the world.


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.
