About Us

Promoting Global Justice & Equality Through Education, since 1984

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.
  • Explore the links between our lives and those of people throughout the world.
  • Enable action for a fairer, more peaceful and sustainable world.
  • Foster skills, values and attitudes to enhance understanding of how our choices affect others.

What we can offer:

The Centre works in partnership with schools, higher and further education establishments, youth and adult community workers to support and encourage global learning. We offer help to embed Global Citizenship and Learning for Sustainability through:

  • Career Long Professional Learning for teachers, whole schools and cluster groups
  • facilitating workshops with young people and adults
  • programmes for youth and adult groups
  • placements for Community Learning and Development students
  • a resource library with teaching packs, books, magazines, DVDs & games on global issues for use in schools and community and are available to borrow.
