Global Learning

Global Link operates a library of resources on global issues for teachers and the wider public, and runs exhibitions, workshops and training, and other global learning projects.

Global Learning or Development Education enables people to understand the links between their own lives and those of people throughout the world. Development Education increases understanding of the economic, social, political and environmental forces which shape our lives. Development Education develops the skills, attitudes and values which enable people to work together to work towards achieving a more just and sustainable world in which power and resources are more equitably shared.
