Education Toward Social Change 23 June 2017

Centre for Global Education, Development Studies Association Ireland and St. Mary’s University College, Belfast invite you to a seminar titled: Education Toward Social Change. Speakers are as follows Mary Van Lieshout (Chair) (Development Studies Association, Ireland), Nicola Browne (Director, Participation and the Practice of Rights), Frank Geary (Director, Irish Development Education Association), Elaine Nevin (National Director, ECO–UNESCO), and Dermot O’Brien (National Youth Council of Ireland).

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are central to the United Nations’ 2030 agenda for sustainable Development. The 17 SDGs and 169 related targets take as their starting point that “eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.” A key aspect of achieving sustainable development is education and this is specifically mapped out in SDG 4.7 which states that by 2030 we should “ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles”. Achieving this ambitious target will require concerted action by all sectors of education committed to sustainability and this seminar aims to initiate that discussion at a local level. We are inviting representatives from education sectors with an active interest and involvement in achieving SDG 4.7 to debate how we can best work together to enhance global citizenship and positive social change.

This event is free but registration is essential. Places are limited to 40. To register please click here: https://goo.gl/forms/MuYBhRMZwjlzQYnP2
