Development Education

Development Education is about increasing awareness and understanding of the rapidly changing and unequal world in which we live. It also encourages people to think critically about what connects the lives of people, rich and poor, across the world. After participating in our programmes, you become a part of the EIL Network and you are invited to take part in activities promoting global justice and respect among the peoples of the world. Act with us for a more just and equal society; you can make a difference!
