About us


IDEA's Strategy 2016 – 2018 is a framework for working with our members towards our shared vision of an equal, just and sustainable world where empathy, solidarity and active citizenship are fostered and people are empowered to analyse and challenge the root causes of injustice, poverty and inequality. 

Our strategic aims are:
  • To create an enabling environment for Development Education
  • To strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of the Development Education sector in Ireland
  • To ensure recognition of Development Education’s essential role in achieving global justice, global citizenship and sustainability
  • To strengthen IDEA’s capacity to work effectively
