What is Global Citizenship Education?

With our Global Citizenship Education programme, we are contributing to raising a generation of Global Citizens who understand and critically reflect on our interconnected world, and who can act in pursuit of a fairer, more equal, and sustainable world for all.

Inspiring new Global Citizens

GOAL's Global Citizenship team works with primary schools across Ireland. Our Global Citizenship Education workshops, resources and programmes explore how global justice issues interlink with children’s daily lives, challenge stereotypes and encourage critical thinking.



As as a result of the workshop the class were able to make connections between the lives of people in Ireland and other countries.
