IDEAS is a network of organisations and individuals involved in Development Education and Education for Global Citizenship across Scotland in both the formal and informal education sectors.

IDEAS sees Development Education and Education for Global Citizenship as active learning processes that:

  • enable people to understand the links between their own lives and those of people throughout the world
  • increase understanding of the economic, social, political and environmental forces that shape our lives
  • develop skills, attitudes and values that enable people to work together to bring about change and take control of their lives
  • contribute to the development of a more just and sustainable world, in which power and resources are more equitably shared

By raising awareness of global concerns and illustrating the potential for change, the IDEAS network aims to influence those in all sectors of formal and informal education and life long learning including teachers, policy makers, youth and adult education workers and a range of voluntary and statutory organisations.


IDEAS provide opportunities to debate, discuss and generate ideas and action.  IDEAS work with partner organisations in the delivery of projects such as the Global Learning Programme in Scotland providing global citizenship training and support to embed global citizenship in practitioners work.
