Minister of State for Development Seán Sherlock has launched the National Report on Global Education in Ireland.


The so-called Gene Report contains perspective recommendations for strengthening development education in Ireland, as well as informing the next Irish Aid Development Education Strategy.


Increasing awareness in Ireland of the rapidly changing, interdependent and unequal world in which we live is a key component in Irish Aid’s goal to tackle global poverty and injustice, to promote peace and democracy and to safeguard human rights.


According to the minister’s department, the report “acknowledges the rich history, traditions, experience and skills evident in development education in Ireland. It also commends the strong and longstanding commitment of Irish Aid, civil society organisations and other relevant stakeholders” to the subject.


“Development education is an area of special interest for me and I am keenly aware of the work being done to engage the coming generation who will take up the fight against global hunger, poverty and injustice,” said Minister Sherlock at the report’s launch recently.


“I am confident that the Gene Report will help us to enhance and strengthen development education in the future and to build the capacity of the development education community in Ireland.”
