Development Education involves teaching and learning the knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and values that enable young people to become increasingly aware of issues related to development, environment and sustainability.

The Development Education Association (DEA) defines Development Education as lifelong learning that:

  • explores the links between people living in the "developed" countries of the North with those of the "developing" South, enabling people to understand the links between their own lives and those of people throughout the world
  • increases understanding of the economic, social, political and environmental forces which shape our lives
  • develops the skills, attitudes and values which enable people to work together to take action to bring about change and take control of their own lives
  • works towards achieving a more just and a more sustainable world in which power and resources are more equitably shared.
