This accredited course will involve exploring and questioning what development is, how to evaluate development, and what are some of the root causes of the many development challenges facing the world today.  It invites you to consider how issues such as runaway inequality, poverty, climate change, hunger and conflict can be addressed and a more equal and sustainable world can be achieved?  If you are interested in human rights, community, sustainability, social justice, culture, inequality, neo-liberalism, colonialism and other topics relating to human development here and around the globe, then this course will be of interest to you. It aims to equip people with the ability to think about global development issues in a critical way.

This course will be held in the Direct Provision accommodation centre for asylum seekers in Mosney, Co. Meath. A considerable proportion of the course participants will be asylum seeker residents of Mosney. It is envisaged that this will add huge richness for all participants on the course, in terms of cultural, political and social diversity and a rare opportunity for asylum seekers and permanent residents of Ireland to learn together and interact as equals.

The course is particularly targeted at people involved in community organizations and groups and will enable them to bring a global development perspective to their work and lives. As well as attendance there are 3 assignments necessary to obtain the Fetac Level 6 accreditation. For more info contact Helena at deved@lycs.ie.
