'Bouncing Back and Beyond’, is an educational resource pack which explores the concept of ‘Resilience’ with young people, focusing on the local and global issues affecting their lives.
Going Global! provides youth workers with a step-by-step guide to delivering quality development education programmes. Each section includes case studies which share the experiences and insights of youth workers and young people involved in development education. These case studies highlight the value of development education to young people in Ireland and globally and show why youth work settings are ideal for doing development education. Going Global! also gives suggestions on how to make development education a core part of youth organisations' on-going work.
The 'Framing Our World’ pack aims to raise awareness of the reality behind images and messages. It looks at the power relations and stories behind the images we receive about the world we live in. It challenges stereotypes to find a more balanced, just approach to global justice.
The pack details a number of tools to analyse where images and messages come from and their impact. These tools include developing photo-literacy, critical reflection and the Dóchas Code of Conduct on Images and Messages.
