Global Learning projects, programmes and resources for schools and teachers.

For over 20 years Devon Development Education has been working with schools and communities, aiming to help children and people of all ages understand the big issues in the world and their involvement in them; make links with the ‘global village’ within and outside Devon; and work together for a more just and sustainable world.

Our main long-term projects are ... 

Cultural Champions

Fairtrade 

Food for Thought 

Twilight for Teachers: Free sessions are often offered to teachers and others interested in the global dimension in education. Check the Teacher Training page for details. 

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) enables young people to develop the knowledge, values and skills to participate in decisions about the way we do things individually and collectively, both locally and globally, that will improve the quality of life now without damaging the planet for the future.

Global Citizenship, while similar to Development Education, is a more recent development and has emerged in the wake of the citizenship curriculum.

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.

Global School Partnerships (GSP) is a DfID funded programme which provides advice and guidance, professional development opportunities and grants to help develop school partnerships between schools in the UK and schools in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
