Trócaire has been to the forefront of Development Education and Global Citizenship for many years. Over that time we have created some fantastic resources that can be used by educators, teachers, youth workers, parents and learners themselves.

You can download our reference guide to Trócaire’s Development Education Resources. This can aid you with your remote teaching and learning over the next few weeks up until the end of this academic year. 

Also check out our exciting competitions for you to encourage your students/young people to enter during this time. Trócaire’s Game Changers Home Challenge Competition and Trócaire’s Poetry Ireland Competition. See more details below.

Students play ‘The Exploitation Game’ to learn about oil companies and the rights of local people.

We have put together all of our most recent resources in one handy “Resource Reference Guide”. This will allow you to access age appropriate resources that can be used at home.

We have resources for Early Years, Primary, Post Primary and Youth Groups.

During these extraordinary times we have also created a new competition for young people called the Trócaire Game Changers Home Challenge.

This is a competition for young people who want to change the world and believe games are a way to do this. It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to engage with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and have a lot of fun while they do it.

The competition is open to young people of all ages and prizes will be awarded to the best entries. The closing date is 30th June and entries can be submitted by post or electronically.

Poetry Competition

Trócaire’s annual all-Ireland poetry competition is in partnership with Poetry Ireland. This year’s theme: “Standing Her Ground” uses the extraordinary stories of Angela and Madris. These are two brave mothers in Honduras and Kenya (featured in the post primary resource), who are supporting their families by standing up for their right to earn a living on their land.

The competition is FREE to enter and is open to young people, children and adults alike, at all stages in their writing careers, and there are some great prizes.

Entries can be made online or by post. Full details are also available on Poetry Ireland’s website. Closing date 12th June 2020.
