Who We Are

The Ubuntu Network is a community of educators in post primary Initial Teacher Education, that work to support Global Citizenship Education (GCE). We help teacher educators and future teachers gain a deep understanding of global development issues, recognize the need to question these issues, and equip them with the skills and determination to integrate them into their teaching, aiming to make a positive impact.

WE WORK TO SUPPORT GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION

Our Mission And Vision

Champion creative and transformative pedagogical approaches
