A report on a CGE one day workshop, From the Local to the Global, organised in partnership with Lourdes Youth and Community Services, and held in Belfast on 9 March 2012.


This short document is one of the outcomes of a one day workshop organised by the Centre for Global Education on 23 September 2015 titled ‘Development Education, Activism and Social Change’. The workshop aimed to support reflection and debate on how development educators engage the public on international development issues (a full report is here). The action outcome is regularly cited by governments, non-governmental organisations and inter-governmental bodies as a core component of their education activities. They collectively suggest that at the very heart of development education practice is the idea of combining reflection and action toward positive social change.
