There is a lot that we can do to help achieve the SDGs here in Ireland. Talk to your friends and family about the SDGs, reduce the amount of single use plastic you use, talk or write to your TD about an issue you care about and make sure the government sticks to its SDG commitments, cycle, walk or take public transport to school or work, grow your own food – and these are just some of many examples.Check out the lazy person’s guide to saving the world for some inspirations.
Book a Development Education workshop for your class & get our teacher’s resources
GOAL facilitates workshops with primary and secondary schools to increase awareness and understanding of our rapidly changing, interdependent and unequal world and the role we have as citizens in creating change. Our Development Education programme has grown in popularity with Irish schools over the years. Teachers have described GOAL workshops as
'excellent in raising awareness of global issues and helping children to believe that they can be agents of change in the future'.
We have also developed a range of educational resources for primary and secondary school students to help teachers bring global learning and development education to your pupils.

We are recruiting a cohort of Volunteer Youth Advisors between 18 and 25 years old to participate in a project that will directly contribute to the shaping of the GOAL’s 2020+ Youth Programme. Advisors will have the opportunity to explore their experiences of global citizenship, develop skills that support effective advocacy and activism, and interact with special guest speakers. The Volunteer Youth Advisor Project consists of three full day workshops that all participants must attend: October 26, November 16, and December 14. In addition to the workshops, advisors will also be invited to organize their own small discussion events, take part in national campaigns, and a youth summit on climate change. Any questions about the project may be directed to Aislin Lavin email@example.com, and individuals can apply to take part through this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NKLP763
