“Global Citizenship Education is an educational process aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of the rapidly changing, interdependent and unequal world in which we live. By challenging stereotypes and encouraging independent thinking, Global Citizenship Education helps students critically explore the root causes of global justice issues and how they interlink with our everyday lives” (Irish Aid)

This course consists of twelve evening sessions that aim to facilitate teaching and learning about Global Citizenship Education in an active, friendly, and informal environment.

This course is aimed at people with an interest in social justice issues such as poverty, inequality and climate change and each week participants will be provided with a text to engage with as a means of delving deeper into the themes associated with development education or global citizenship education.

Over the course of twelve sessions, participants will review the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and discuss what they are, the purpose they serve on a local level, and how we can understand the issues we all face from a globally informed perspective. We will also look at how the SDGs create a narrative through which we can understand the complex and interconnected world in which we live.

In exploring social justice and global development issues through the arts, movement, play, debate, theatre and storytelling, participants will also be encouraged to foster the skills that can help us to facilitate an environment for others to share: active listening, empathy, non-judgement, self-awareness and curiosity.
