Taking action is an important dimension of development education. But campaigning and
advocacy do not always fit easily within a development education framework. Through an
examination of a number of case studies – the World’s Best News and the Climate Movement –
we will explore the linkages between campaigning/advocacy and development education and
consider the extent to which change has been achieved as a result of the actions.
All welcome !!
