NYCI is a member of the Irish Development Education Association (IDEA). IDEA is the association of organisations and individuals involved in the provision, promotion or advancement of development education throughout the island of Ireland.


For IDEA, development education is an educational response and process aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of the shared development of our world. By engaging people critically in and with our increasingly interdependent world, development education aims to challenge global inequalities, and works towards creating a more just and sustainable future for our planet.
