What is the Learning2Change Our World Programme?
Learning2Change Our World aims to promote and support Education for Sustainable Development in post primary schools. The programme is supported Irish Aid’s WorldWise Global Schools.
The programme works with students, teachers and school staff in participating schools across the country. Participants explore issues regarding sustainability and development and how these areas affect our local and global communities. They will then be empowered to become agents of change within their school and local communities.
The Learning2Change Our World programme contributes to the implementation of the new National Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). This strategy aims to ensure that education contributes to sustainable development by equipping learnings with the relevant knowledge (the ‘what’), the key dispositions and skills (the ‘how’) and the values (the ‘why’) that will motivate and empower them throughout their lives to become informed active citizens who take action for a more sustainable future (Department of Education and Skills (2014); the National Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development in Ireland, 2014- 2020 Dublin).
