Development Education is an active and creative educational process to increase awareness and understanding of the world we live in. It challenges perceptions and stereotypes by encouraging optimism, participation and action.
Trócaire’s Development Education team help to inform learners about global issues such as poverty, injustice, gender equality and climate change using a human rights lens. Through our resources, competitions, workshops and other activities, we engage children, young people and educators in a learning journey on global justice issues. We encourage young people to make a connection between their own lives and global issues, and to play an active role as global citizens for a more just world.
Trócaire’s Development Education team have developed resources to support educators in exploring global justice with their class or youth group. Please visit The Tree Of Justice, our latest education resource for senior primary, post primary and youth. The Tree of Justice explores global justice issues in Somalia, Guatemala and Palestine.

We also deliver a games based learning programme called Game Changers and a documentary film making programme called The Right Focus.
