LYCS is a community development project based in Dublin’s North East Inner City. One of the ways that LYCS seeks to empower local people to play a part in transforming their communities is through ‘Development Education’. This form of interactive education involves exploring issues relevant to the community (e.g. drugs, food, inequality, housing) from local and global perspectives. Essentially, Development Education is about linking the local to the global, and empowering people to become active players in our increasingly globalised and unequal world.
