JOIN US - September Is Global Citizenship Month

For the last few years, we've been celebrating Global Citizenship during the month of September.

Along with our fellow Development Education Centres (DECs) across Scotland, as well as members of IDEAS, we've celebrated and showcased great teaching practice, resources, ideas, methodologies and examples of Global Citizenship.

We're Making A Noise For Global Citizenship Education

Since 2014, our work has been funded annually by the Scottish Government. In July 2020, and in collaboration with our fellow Development Education Centres, we've begun to ask MSPs across Scotland to pledge their commitment to us and our work. With your support as constituency members too, we can help to show them how valued and essential Global Citizenship Education is for educators, young people and Scottish society as a whole.
