Learn and teach for a sustainable future – Empowering Public Participation Networks across Ireland to take action of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals


The trainings will highlight the relevance of the SDGs in a local-specific context and also the potential that Development Education has in creating transformative change in communities. DP would like to extend an invitation for your PPN to be one of the six PPNs involved in this programme in 2021.

The Sustainable Development Goals    In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. This project is an opportunity for your institute to actively contribute to their achievement.

Development education is an approach to education which looks to foreground the importance of tackling the root causes of poverty, inequality and climate change. It is an interactive, inclusive approach to education which foregrounds critical thinking, systems thinking, problem solving, and active citizenship.


What we are offering in 2021

  1. A two-hour introductory workshop on the SDGs with PPN members and/or secretariat.  This will be conducted using an adult education approach and interactive methods.
  2. An information sheet for PPN websites to highlight their involvement with the SDGs.
  3. Support throughout the year for support/resource PPN workers – information regarding opportunities etc.
  4. All PPNs will have access to new SDG resources for their members to support their engagement throughout the year.


Cost:    There is no cost for this training.
