What is Development Education?
Development Education is an educational process. It aims to increase public awareness and understanding of the rapidly changing, interdependent and unequal world in which we live.
By challenging stereotypes and encouraging independent thinking, Development Education helps people to explore how global justice issues interlink with their everyday lives and it engages people in analysis and reflection. GOAL understands that young people are the future and that learning about the world in which we live, and the global issues that affect us all, is critical to understanding our role as global citizens. Therefore, increasing awareness and understanding about the world is an essential element of GOAL's work.
