Our World, Our Future is a development education resource for senior primary classes, produced by Irish Aid. While it has special relevance for Geography and the strand unit of Development and Aid, it is also designed for cross-curricular use across most subject areas. The resource encourages pupils to explore the meaning and importance of development in today’s world from a child’s perspective, in relation to local and global development issues, interdependence and self-reliance, human rights, equality and social justice. There is a strong focus throughout on the Millenium Development Goals which are central to understanding development in the current context.
