What We Do


IDEA’s work on supporting and building partnerships is an important area of focus for the sector. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have highlighted the need to actively break down silos, draw on each other’s strengths and maximise the benefits of working together, to achieve change.

IDEA aims to strengthen internal and external partnerships, and provide space to enable these links to flourish. We are reaching out to new partners to enhance the impact of Development Education, as well as catalysing and supporting collaboration and partnerships within our sector and beyond through our Bridge 47 project.

This process began with Challenging the Crisis, where we partnered with Development Education organisations in other EU countries as well as organisations and actors in the Social and Solidarity Economy space.

If you would like to contact us about our partnerships work please email our Bridge 47 National Officer Ji Hyun Kim - ji.hyun.kim@bridge47.org


We organise training, seminars & meetings to build capacity in the following areas:


IDEA works to connect its membership and also to connect Development Education to wider audiences.
