Global Citizenship Educational Resources

Our Global Citizenship Education Resources use drama and participatory methodologies to allow students to explore complex concepts such as Poverty, Water access and the UN Global Goals in an accessible, inclusive way. Below you can find all of our classroom resources for both primary and secondary school, each helping to support Global Citizenship learning in the classroom.

Resources for Primary Schools

1st – 6th class

Third and fourth class students in Castleplunkett National School are named as joint winners of GOAL's Changemakers  Award for their campaign to reduce fossil fuels in their locality. The young students made a series of informative posters highlighting the excessive use of fossil fuels and asking their community to consider their consumption in a bid to reach Sustainable Development Goal 13: Sustainable Cities and Communities

The Changemakers Programme

These creative, curriculum-linked lesson plans and audio-visuals, in both English and Irish, equip primary school teachers to explore Global Citizenship with their 1st - 6th class students, learn about the UN Global Goals and inspire action for a sustainable and fair world for all. Resources have been developed in line with the Department of Education and Skills Covid-19 response plan for safe reopening of schools and the NCCA recommendations for this year.

Register now to access our lesson plans and resources and the GOAL team will be in touch to support you on your Changemakers journey. Every class that takes part receives a beautiful World Map for their classroom and a certificate of recognition for taking part in the Changemakers journey.
