4 FOREWORD It gives me great peasure to aunch Irish Aid's Strategy for Deveopment Education for the period 2017 to This strategy is the cumination of amost two years of engagement between the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and our deveopment education partners. It is aso buit on a very successfu European peer review of deveopment education carried out in This is a very timey exercise. Our ast strategy was aunched in 2007 just before the financia crisis and subsequent years of economic recession. Importanty, however, during the difficut years from 2008, Ireand s commitment to its programme of overseas deveopment remained strong. This refects the Irish peope s generosity and sense of their pace in the word and their awareness of the goba chaenges of hunger and poverty. These are the vaues that drive deveopment education in Ireand, in schoos and coeges, in oca and community groups, and among the od and young. Ireand s foreign poicy and aid poicy are, in essence, inseparabe. They are defined by the promotion of our vaues of a fairer, more just, more secure and more sustainabe word. Irish Aid promotes these vaues abroad through our work with poor communities in deveoping countries, and at home through our support for deveopment education. In a word where miions suffer from extreme poverty, confict and humanitarian crises, the need for education that promotes informed responses to these chaenges has never been more important. With the adoption at the UN in September 2015 of the 17 Sustainabe Deveopment Goas (SDGs), the word renewed its commitment to eradicating goba poverty, hunger and inequaity. SDG Target 4.7 cas on States to provide education to ensure that a earners acquire the knowedge and skis needed to promote sustainabe deveopment. Deveopment education strengthens understanding of the goba justice dimension of each of the Goas, inspiring and enabing peope to take action at oca, nationa and goba eves. It is critica to achieving the promise of transformative change that defines the SDGs. This new strategy affirms our commitment to deveopment education and its centra roe to both our internationa deveopment programme and Irish foreign poicy. I beieve that our strategy is ambitious in that it seeks to increase the accessibiity, quaity and effectiveness of deveopment education in Ireand. And I beieve that the vision which drives deveopment education is compeing: a sustainabe and just word where peope are empowered to overcome poverty and hunger and fuy reaise their rights and potentia. We are confident that our strategy wi enhance the deivery of deveopment education in Ireand. In aunching this strategy, we take inspiration from the words of Neson Mandea Education is the most powerfu weapon which you can use to change the word. Chares Fanagan TD Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade 4 STRENGTHENING IRELAND S CONTRIBUTION TO A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST WORLD THROUGH DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION

5 I am deighted to introduce Irish Aid's new Deveopment Education Strategy. This strategy buids on the work achieved in deveopment education in Ireand since the 1970s, starting with the work of non-governmenta deveopment organisations and church missionary organisations. Deveopment education is transformative; it enabes peope to anayse and chaenge the root causes and consequences of goba poverty and inequaity. It changes the way peope think and act and inspires them to become active goba citizens. It empowers them to act in their own ives to hep bring about a fairer, more secure, more just and more sustainabe word for a. As the od Irish saying goes, Ní neart go cur e chéie. When I worked as a teacher, I coud see the natura instinct for justice that young peope possess. I beieve, therefore, that the young peope in schoo today wi be the generation that deivers on the promise of the Sustainabe Deveopment Goas. Since becoming Minister for Internationa Deveopment, I have been struck by the commitment of teachers and students to make a persona commitment to the fight to end extreme poverty. This strategy sets out our ambition for deveopment education in Ireand over the coming years. We want to see quaity deveopment education brought to a wide audience in a wide range of educationa settings, from cassrooms to university campuses, from youth cubs to community groups. We wi continue to support the deivery of high quaity deveopment education in the forma education system and its integration into forma curricua, programmes and poicies. In the non-forma education sector, we wi increase our focus on initia youth worker education, adut and community education curricua and the engagement of young peope. The strategy is the work of many hands and I woud ike to pay tribute to the many committed deveopment education organisations and practitioners, other government departments and agencies, civi society organisations, education institutions and NGOs who informed its deveopment. Great credit is due to the Goba Education Network Europe (GENE) for its work in conducting a Peer Review and its Nationa Report on Goba Education in Ireand. The Department of Education and Skis, the Nationa Counci for Curricuum and Assessment, the Department of Chidren and Youth Affairs and the Department of Housing, Panning, Community and Loca Government are to be commended for their active participation in the deveopment of this strategy. A specia thanks is due to the Irish Deveopment Education Association (IDEA) for its centra roe in faciitating and coordinating the exceent work done by the three Task Groups for the forma education, youth and adut and community education sectors. Partnership is a core vaue of Irish Aid. By working cosey with our partners, we wi increase the accessibiity, quaity and effectiveness of deveopment education in Ireand. I ook forward to the work ahead. Le gach dea-ghuí. Joe McHugh TD Minister of State for the Diaspora and Internationa Deveopment IRISH AID DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION STRATEGY

6 WHY DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION? Deveopment education is a ifeong educationa process which aims to increase pubic awareness and understanding of the rapidy changing, interdependent and unequa word in which we ive. By chaenging stereotypes and encouraging independent thinking, deveopment education heps peope to criticay expore how goba justice issues interink with their everyday ives. Informed and engaged citizens are best paced to address compex socia, economic and environmenta issues inked to deveopment. Deveopment education empowers peope to anayse, refect on and chaenge at a oca and goba eve, the root causes and consequences of goba hunger, poverty, injustice, inequaity and cimate change; presenting mutipe perspectives on goba justice issues. Deveopment education inspires goba soidarity by supporting peope to fuy reaise their rights, responsibiities and potentia as goba citizens. Deveopment education enabes peope to take action ocay and gobay - the understanding or theory of change being that such action wi contribute to desired transformations in the socia, cutura, poitica and economic structures which affect their ives and the ives of others. By engaging with deveopment education, earners deveop the vaues, knowedge, skis and attitudes necessary to become active goba citizens and advocate for change. The United Nations Sustainabe Deveopment Goas , to which Ireand has committed, provide the first internationa framework to guide and support active goba citizenship at both nationa and internationa eves, enabing peope to become active goba citizens in the creation of a fairer, more just, more secure and more sustainabe word for a. Components and Characteristics of Deveopment Education Deveoped by IDEA, 2015 Contributes to Knowedge and Understanding Strengthens Vaues and Attitudes Enhances Skis and Competencies Promotes Action Expores cutura, environmenta, economic, poitica and socia reationships and chaenges oca and goba power inequaities, incuding those caused by patterns of production, distribution and consumption Seeks to bring about positive change, informed by vaues of equaity, diversity, sustainabiity, democracy and human rights and responsibiities Equips peope to expore mutipe perspectives and to engage criticay with inks between oca and goba issues, using participative and creative approaches Enabes peope to make connections between their own ives and goba justice issues, and empowers them to make a positive difference in the word 6 STRENGTHENING IRELAND S CONTRIBUTION TO A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST WORLD THROUGH DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION

7 Deveopment education pays an important roe in buiding the conditions in which we can continue to meet ongoing goba chaenges and as such forms a key part of our overa aid programme. Irish Aid is committed to ongoing support for deveopment education because it contributes to an activey engaged and we-informed Irish pubic, with the competencies to engage with the dynamic, gobaised, unequa and interdependent word in which we ive. Deveopment education deveops a deeper understanding of rights and responsibiities as goba citizens and inspires them to infuence the decisions that affect them as individuas and which shape the goba sustainabe deveopment agenda. SETTIngS for DEVEOPMEnT EDUCATIOn Deveopment education takes pace in a variety of settings with diverse groups of participants, deivering across a ages to reach a wide range of citizens. Deveopment education takes pace in forma education ocations such as eary chidhood education, primary schoos, post-primary schoos, higher education institutions, initia teacher education and further education and training institutions. Deveopment education aso takes pace in non-forma education settings such as youth cubs and organisations, youth and community work training, community education centres, famiy resource centres, community and vountary groups, women s groups, oder peope groups, vounteering programmes, creative arts, oca authorities, trade unions, corporate organisations and through the work of non-governmenta deveopment organisations (NGDOs). DEVEOPMEnT EDUCATIOn THEMES AnD ISSUES Deveopment education addresses a wide range of themes and issues.

8 OUR POLICY ENVIRONMENT IREAnD S foreign POICY At the core of Ireand s foreign poicy, The Goba Isand (2015), is the protection of our citizens and the promotion of our vaues abroad. The four core vaues underpinning our foreign poicy are a fairer, more just, more secure and more sustainabe word. Irish Aid promotes these vaues abroad through our internationa deveopment programme and at home through our deveopment education programme. In an increasingy gobaised word facing profound and proonged conficts which are generating surges in migration, sustained poverty and environmenta degradation, the need for education that promotes informed, coherent and sustained responses to these chaenges has never been more apparent. Deveopment education promotes citizenship iteracy among the Irish pubic by deepening understanding of goba justice issues and Ireand s core vaues, advancing our foreign poicy aim of contributing to the coective internationa effort to buid a better word for a. IREAnD S POICY for InTERnATIOnA DEVEOPMEnT Irish Aid is the Government s officia aid programme administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, working on behaf of the Irish peope to address poverty and hunger in some of the poorest countries in the word. Irish Aid s poicy for internationa deveopment, One Word One Future (2013), recognises Ireand s reputation for high-quaity deveopment education and the important roe it pays in deepening pubic understanding of goba justice issues incuding the root causes and consequences of goba hunger, poverty and inequaity. Deveopment education contributes to the reaisation of Irish Aid s vision for a sustainabe and just word, by providing an opportunity for peope in Ireand to refect on their roes and responsibiities as goba citizens and by encouraging peope to take action for a fairer and more sustainabe future for a. We are committed to undertaking a more strategic approach to deveopment education with support more cosey targeted at a number of areas One Word One future STRENGTHENING IRELAND S CONTRIBUTION TO A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST WORLD THROUGH DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION

9 DOMESTIC POICY COnTEXT: goba CITIZEnSHIP EDUCATIOn In the context of this strategy, goba citizenship education is an umbrea term which incudes both deveopment education and education for sustainabe deveopment (ESD) and encompasses the work of various government departments in advancing active goba citizenship among the Irish pubic. It provides an overarching coherent framework and forms a common ground for future interdepartmenta coaboration. Goba citizenship education buids a sense of beonging to a common humanity and fosters respect for a. It pays a critica roe in equipping earners with the necessary knowedge, competencies and vaues to take informed decisions and assume active roes ocay, nationay and gobay. A number of other government strategies currenty support the principes of goba citizenship education, incuding the Nationa Strategy for Education for Sustainabe Deveopment and the Nationa Youth Strategy We wi continue to support our partners in other government departments to impement these strategies and expand the reach and impact of goba citizenship education in Ireand. Whie different strategies have distinct thematic areas of focus as a resut of party different stakehoder groups, a common overa goa is the deveopment of responsibe, active and contributing goba citizens. Therefore, in this strategy we use the term goba citizenship education as a common and current equivaent to deveopment education. Education gives us a profound understanding that we are tied together as citizens of a goba community, and that our chaenges are interconnected. Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary Genera ( ) Strong engagement by and effective coaboration between government departments on a shared goba citizenship education agenda is essentia in order to maximise the impact and reach of active deveopment education in Ireand. We wi work cosey with the Department of Education and Skis, the Nationa Counci for Curricuum and Assessment, the Department of Chidren and Youth Affairs, the Department of Housing, Panning, Community and Loca Government and other reevant government departments and agencies in pursuit of a coordinated whoe-of-government approach to goba citizenship education. We wi pursue new opportunities to work more cosey on key interdepartmenta areas such as: initia teacher education, #LightTheWay.

Athough deveopment education remains an integra part of the poicies of Irish Aid and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, further coherence and integration with the reevant activities of government departments and European networks wi ensure outcome resiience and enhance our progress towards sustainabe and systemic change. InTERnATIOnA POICY COnTEXT: UnITED nations SUSTAInABE DEVEOPMEnT goas In September 2015, with the adoption of the UN Sustainabe Deveopment Goas by 193 countries at the United Nations headquarters in New York, the word renewed its commitment to eradicating goba poverty, hunger and inequaity and to tacking the probem of unsustainabe patterns of consumption. These goas and targets which are appicabe to a countries, aim to eradicate poverty, address environmenta degradation and cimate change and buid a more peacefu, fair and sustainabe word by The UN Sustainabe Deveopment Goas have radicay changed our understanding of deveopment, from the binaries of deveoped and deveoping to the recognition that a countries are constanty deveoping and transforming, as they respond to emerging goba chaenges and pursue more sustainabe, interdependent societies and economies to ensure the we-being of their citizens. The Sustainabe Deveopment Goas acknowedge the important roe of goba citizenship education incuding deveopment education in buiding the conditions for a more peacefu, fair and sustainabe word under Target 4.7, which cas on countries to ensure that a earners acquire the knowedge and skis needed to promote sustainabe deveopment, incuding, among others, through education for sustainabe deveopment and sustainabe ifestyes, human rights, gender equaity, promotion of a cuture of peace and nonvioence, goba citizenship and appreciation of cutura diversity and of cuture s contribution to sustainabe deveopment.

Photo: Caire Keogh The Sustainabe Deveopment Goas create a context for Ireand to provide quaity education on goba citizenship. Deveopment education is an essentia component in deivering Ireand s commitment under Target 4.7 as we as raising awareness of the 17 Sustainabe Deveopment Goas. Deveopment education strengthens pubic understanding of the interconnectedness of goba and nationa poverty and inequaity, supporting the Irish pubic to acquire the necessary knowedge, vaues and anaytica skis to understand the goba justice focus of each of the Goas and the underying vaues and dispositions. Deveopment education is therefore integra to the successfu deivery of the Sustainabe Deveopment Goas, inspiring and enabing peope to take action to deiver the Goas at oca, nationa and goba eves. We wi pursue a opportunities to work in partnership with the reevant government departments to reach Target 4.7 of the UN Sustainabe Deveopment Goas through the provision of high-quaity goba citizenship education. By combining our efforts and working in a coherent and compementary manner with the internationa community through the framework provided by the Sustainabe Deveopment Goas, Ireand can maximise the effectiveness of its foreign poicy, internationa deveopment poicy, Deveopment Education Strategy and other nationa goba citizenship education programmes to buid a fairer and more sustainabe word for a the word s citizens. Ireand, aong with Kenya, had the honour of co-faciitating the agreement of the new SDGs at the United Nations. We wi work to impement the SDGs and to promote their impementation both in Ireand and around the word. IRISH AID DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION STRATEGY

12 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP Our work in deveopment education is carried out in partnership with many committed individuas and organisations across the forma, non-forma and informa education sectors in Ireand. Irish Aid vaues the commitment and expertise of deveopment education practitioners and civi society organisations and wi seek to buid on these existing partnerships. Deveopment NGOs are aso we paced to buid on their overseas deveopment programmes, to highight important goba issues and to impement deveopment education programmes that promote refection, critica anaysis and action for change amongst the Irish pubic. Coordination between a deveopment education actors in Ireand is critica to the success of our Deveopment Education Strategy. We are committed to continuing our cose engagement with the Irish Deveopment Education Association (IDEA), the nationa network for deveopment education practitioners invoved in the practice, promotion and advancement of deveopment education across Ireand. We wi continue to work in partnership with IDEA, Dóchas (the network for Deveopment Organisations), and our deveopment education partners through various mechanisms incuding working groups to advance poicy opportunities and buid capacity in deveopment education in Ireand.

Photo : Care Muvany A review of Irish Aid s support to deveopment education was undertaken in 2011, which resuted in the pubication of the 2011 Synthesis Report. In response to the Synthesis Report, we adopted a more strategic and resuts-based approach with an increased focus on specific priority areas such as pursuing poicy and curricuum opportunities, buiding the capacity of educators, the sharing and promotion of good practice and the dissemination and accessibiity of deveopment education resources. To ensure a more coherent ong-term approach to its support for deveopment education, we increased our strategic partnership programmes to five, specificay: Irish Deveopment Education Association (IDEA) for capacity buiding of deveopment education practitioners The DICE (Deveopment Education and Intercutura Education) Project which supports the integration of deveopment education into primary initia teacher education Irish Aid WordWise goba Schoos Programme (WWgS Programme) which supports post-primary schoos students and teachers to engage in deveopment education SUAS which supports third eve students in the non-forma sphere of higher education institutions to engage in deveopment education Deveopmenteducation.ie for the onine dissemination of deveopment education resources 12 STRENGTHENING IRELAND S CONTRIBUTION TO A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST WORLD THROUGH DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION

13 IRISH AID DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION STRATEGY

14 PROGRESS TO DATE In 2012, foowing the 2011 Review and in coaboration with our deveopment education partners, we deveoped the first Performance Measurement Framework for deveopment education with the aim of setting out cear priority resuts and outputs for our Deveopment Education Strategy over the period During this period, we strengthened coherence between deveopment education and other nationa poicies and supported the integration of deveopment education in forma and non-forma education programmes, curricua and institutions in Ireand. Between 2012 and 2015, Irish Aid invested over 14 miion in support of deveopment education, through a combination of the Deveopment Education Annua Grant Scheme, Strategic Partnership Programmes and Programme Grant funding. Irish Aid, IDEA and our DE partners have activey engaged with stakehoders such as the Department of Education and Skis, the Department of Chidren and Youth Affairs, the Nationa Counci for Curricuum and Assessment and the Teaching Counci. By participating in nationa consutation processes and providing written submissions as appropriate, we have advanced the reach of DE in nationa curricua, poicies and frameworks.

15 The Irish Aid WordWise Goba Schoos (WWGS) programme has successfuy increased both the quaity and quantity of DE engagement within the Irish postprimary sector through its unique programme of interventions for schoos. We set up the WWGS programme to provide a comprehensive range of supports for a post-primary schoos who want to engage in DE interventions incuding training, schoo visits, CPD, the Goba Passport Awards scheme and the Doing DE resource series. The WWGS programme manages an annua grant round, which supports individua post-primary schoos as we as a variety of networks and NGOs, which provide taiored support and opportunities for both students and their teachers to engage in DE. Since 2012, both directy and indirecty, the WWGS programme has successfuy engaged 349 schoos, 477 post-primary student teachers and 1,917 post-primary teachers in DE activities. A number of strategic partnerships supported by Irish Aid over the years have ed to the successfu and widespread integration of DE in some cases. These seem to have been most successfu where they have taken a system-wide or sector-wide approach within structures or throughout whoe systems or sectors of education or civi society. gene nationa Report 2015 Through the DICE Project, a strategic partnership with four higher education institutions providing initia teacher education at primary eve, we supported the provision of DE to a affiiated primary student teachers. Since September 2012, 6817 student teachers have competed mandatory modues in DE and 10,890 student teachers have undertaken integrated earning about DE. Since 2014, DICE has successfuy embedded DE in the undergraduate primary teaching programmes of the participating institutions, engaging 100% of undergraduate primary student teachers in DE. We supported Suas, a strategic partner, to engage third eve students in deveopment education. Between 2012 and 2015, 21,344 students participated in the Goba Issues Course, and a further 3,179 students participated in the INSPIRE programme events. We supported the deveopmenteducation.ie consortium through a strategic partnership, for the provision of an onine patform of resources and support for deveopment education practitioners. Between 2012 and 2015, deveopmenteducation.ie achieved 520,015 page views and 214,916 visits, which amounted to an increase of 160% in site users and 82% increase in return visits. We supported IDEA to conduct a capacity needs anaysis of DE organisations to inform its strategic capacity deveopment programme for DE practitioners over the period 2012 to The programme supported DE practitioners to buid their capacity in a number of priority areas incuding governance, organisationa management, DE knowedge and skis, quaity and impact, networking, poicy engagement, resuts-based approaches, data coection and impact measurement. We engaged with DE at a European eve through active participation in the Goba Education Network Europe (GENE), attending network roundtabe meetings twice a year and sharing updates on the DE context in Ireand with our European counterparts. Our DE partners have aso supported Ireand s engagement with nationa and internationa goba citizenship poicies through various mechanisms incuding European Youth Forum, EU Youth Strategy, European Youth Structured Diaogue Process, CONCORD, the Goba Education Network of Young Europeans (GLEN) and UNESCO Goba Action Programme on ESD and Goba Citizenship (GAP). IRISH AID DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION STRATEGY

16 We supported the deveopment of DE good practice guideines and resources to inform, support and enhance DE good practice in Ireand. With our support, the Centre for Goba Education produced two issues per year of the free onine journa Poicy and Practice and the commemorative book Poicy and Practice: 10 th Anniversary Edition. Poicy and Practice gathers insights from the broader DE sector to enhance practitioner knowedge and support good practice. We supported the youth sector to engage young peope and those who work with young peope in DE training, workshops, events, peer education courses, roundtabes, days of activism, projects and awards programmes to deveop a sense of active goba citizenship. The youth sector has worked with the Education and Training Board Youth Officers, Arts Officers and youth and community structures at oca and nationa eves to increase knowedge, integration, quaity and spread of DE. We supported the integration of DE in the adut and community education sector through the Education and Training Boards and provided DE workshops, events, days of activism and training courses to adut education tutors, pre-departure vounteers, returned internationa vounteers, women s groups, community groups and adut earners. Irish Aid has aso supported a diverse range of informa projects incuding pubic events and fim festivas. IRISH AID AWAREnESS PROgRAMME We estabished the Our Word Irish Aid Awards for primary schoos in 2004 to educate and engage pupis in the UN Deveopment Goas and the work of Irish Aid. During the period 2012 to 2015, over 1,100 schoos each year have registered to participate in the Our Word Awards.

19 WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED There has been a rich tradition of deveopment education in Ireand for over 40 years which has been buit on the skis, achievements and contribution of civi society and missionary organisations, and which has received government support for over 35 years. To date, Irish Aid has deveoped two deveopment education strategies, the first of which covered the period The second strategy, which was deveoped in 2007 and extended unti 2015, aimed to ensure that Deveopment education reaches a wide audience in Ireand by increasing the provision of high quaity programmes to teachers and others invoved in deveopment education and by working with the education sector, NGOs and civi society partners. We wi work to ensure that our decisions, poicies and programmes, and those of our partners, are informed by essons earned, evauations, reviews and research. Through the GENE Peer Review of Ireand and consutation with deveopment education stakehoders at an Irish Aid Nationa Consutation Day hed in Apri 2015, a number of priorities were identified for consideration: 1. A whoe-of-government approach is critica to the impementation of deveopment education, to ensure that our efforts are part of a cohesive overarching government poicy of goba citizenship education. It is essentia that Irish Aid, the Department of Education and Skis, the Nationa Counci for Curricuum and Assessment, the Department of Chidren and Youth Affairs, the Department of Housing, Panning, Community and Loca Government and reevant agencies continue to iaise reguary and pursue opportunities for interdepartmenta cooperation. 2. Our strategic partnership approach to deveopment education, described as exempary by the GENE Nationa Report, has proved very effective. This strategic partnership mode shoud now be extended to both the youth and adut and community education sectors. 3. For a number of deveopment education programmes or projects, muti-annua funding woud enhance the deivery of quaity deveopment education by faciitating strategic programme panning, sustainabe impact and opportunities for greater coherence and coaboration between organisations. 4. Strengthening coordination, coaboration and capacity buiding of a deveopment education practitioners and organisations ensures ongoing success in the deivery of deveopment education in Ireand and remains a key priority for Irish Aid. 5. There is a need for targeted strategic research to inform and enhance the effective deivery and practice of high-quaity deveopment education in Ireand. 6. The Sustainabe Deveopment goas create a context for Ireand to provide quaity education on goba citizenship, human rights and sustainabe deveopment. Deveopment education is a key component both in deivering this commitment and raising awareness of the Sustainabe Deveopment Goas. 7. We shoud continue to pursue a resuts-based management approach in our support for deveopment education in consutation with our partners to continuousy improve deivery and practice. IRISH AID DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION STRATEGY

Task Groups and Written Submissions 2017 DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION STRATEGY Irish Aid Nationa Consutation Day Externa Reference Group GENE Peer Review and Nationa Report gene PEER REVIEW AnD gene nationa REPORT A major stage in the deveopment of our strategy was the GENE Peer Review and GENE Nationa Report on Goba Education in Ireand (2015). The Goba Education Network Europe, or GENE, is the European network of Ministries, Agencies and other bodies with responsibiity at nationa eve, for support, funding and poicymaking in the fied of goba education or deveopment education. In 2015, Irish Aid invited GENE to conduct a Peer Review to assess the nationa context for deveopment education in Ireand and make recommendations for the successor Deveopment Education Strategy. Over the course of the review, the GENE Peer Review Team met with IDEA, the Dóchas Deveopment Education Group, the Department of Education and Skis and Irish Aid officias, as we as representatives from the forma education, youth and adut and community education sectors. The findings of the review were pubished in the GENE Nationa Report on Goba Education in Ireand which was aunched in Iveagh House in November STRENGTHENING IRELAND S CONTRIBUTION TO A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST WORLD THROUGH DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION

21 The GENE Nationa Report acknowedged the rich history and tradition of deveopment education in Ireand and the ong-standing commitment of Irish Aid, civi society organisations and other stakehoders working in this area. The report commended the diversity of strategy and approach in deveopment education across the forma, non-forma and informa education sectors and recommended that the successor Deveopment Education Strategy provide renewed vision and strengthen the aims of integrating deveopment education in education at a eves. TASK groups Irish Aid worked cosey with IDEA to engage the views of deveopment education practitioners in Ireand. At the invitation of Irish Aid, IDEA coordinated the estabishment of three Task Groups representing the forma education, adut and community education and youth sectors, to inform the GENE Peer Review and the successor Deveopment Education Strategy. Irish Aid hed a number of meetings with the Task Groups to prepare for the GENE Peer Review, to discuss the GENE Nationa Report and to share drafts of our strategy. The three Task Groups presented at the Irish Aid Nationa Consutation Day, met with the GENE Peer Review team and contributed written submissions to both the GENE Peer Review and the Irish Aid Deveopment Education Strategy. DEVEOPMEnT EDUCATIOn nationa COnSUTATIOn DAY Irish Aid hosted a Nationa Consutation Day in Apri 2015 attended by over 100 representatives from the forma education, youth, adut and community, civi society and deveopment sectors. The Nationa Consutation Day faciitated roundtabe discussions which gave stakehoders the opportunity to discuss, debate and identify the chaenges, opportunities and key priorities for the progression of deveopment education in Ireand. The three Task Groups presented on the key chaenges, opportunities and proposed priority areas for deveopment education in reation to adut and community education, youth and forma education. Among the highights of the day was a presentation from the Department of Education and Skis discussing the synergies between deveopment education and education for sustainabe deveopment and emphasising the cose working reationship between our two departments. EXTERnA REfEREnCE group Irish Aid estabished an Externa Reference Group for the Deveopment Education Strategy comprising representatives from the Department of Education and Skis, the Nationa Counci for Curricuum and Assessment, the Department of Chidren and Youth Affairs and the Department of Housing, Panning, Community and Loca Government as we as representatives from the Irish Aid Expert Advisory Group, IDEA and Dóchas.

The Performance Measurement Framework or PMF wi track changes envisioned in the strategy and generate a comprehensive dataset on which to evauate the strategy s effectiveness, contribute to future decision-making and provide a strong evidence base for assessing the impact of our support for deveopment education. Data coected by the PMF wi be disaggregated by gender, age and geographica ocation to demonstrate progress towards increased accessibiity of deveopment education. The increased quaity of deveopment education wi be assessed by the percentage of earners who report improved goba citizenship iteracy foowing participation in a deveopment education workshop, course or education programme. The increased effectiveness of deveopment education wi be measured by the percentage of the tota number of earners who can give an exampe of how participating in a deveopment education event or earning activity has changed their attitude or behaviour. 22 STRENGTHENING IRELAND S CONTRIBUTION TO A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST WORLD THROUGH DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION
