Core Area: Outreach


To foster a world of justice and sustainability, it’s crucial to reorient education systems, policies, and practices. Global Citizenship Education (GCE) should be central in discussions across all education settings, curriculum, policy-making, teacher development, and SDG initiatives. We invite stakeholders to collaborate with us, share insights, and contribute to shaping policy and curriculum. Together, we aim to expand our Assembly and Associate membership to make a greater impact.

Key Stakeholders

We work with stakeholders to initiate conversations on how Global Citizenship Education (GCE) can be enhanced across formal education, how we can share our work and learn from the work of others, and ultimately ensure that GCE is central to discourse in education policy and reform.

Teacher groups and associations ● Teaching Council of Ireland ● State Examinations Commission ● National Council for Curriculum and Assessment ● Junior Cycle for Teachers ● Professional Development Services for Teachers ● Government departments (DES, DFHERIS, DCCAE) ● Teacher educator networks (GENE, Angel, EPI-STEM) ● National teacher education forum (DICE) ● Higher Education Institutions (outside of ITE) ● Post primary teachers, schools, school networks and patrons

Dialogue day discussion


We bring members together to develop submissions to government consultations as they arise. Recent submissions were written for the National Strategy on Education for Sustainable Development to 2030 and the Irish Aid Global Citizenship Education Strategy 2021-2025.
