The Centre was established in 1984 and our current focus is Education for Global Citizenship. We are a part of the International Development Education Association of Scotland (IDEAS) – a network of organisations and individuals involved in Development Education and Education for Global Citizenship across Scotland.
Our aims are to:
- Increase understanding of issues of global, social and environmental justice.

- Enable action for a fairer, more peaceful and sustainable world.
- Foster skills, values and attitudes to enhance understanding of how our choices affect others.
