Every country around the world is taking action to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. What are they? Why and how are they relevant to youth work? This training looks at why the SDGs are important, and how they relate to the work of youth organisations, youth workers, leaders and to volunteers and young people.
The connection between local and global issues is not always obvious at first. This training delves a little deeper into issues relevant to young people and looks to build on the knowledge of youth workers and young people as we all navigate between our local community and a globalised world.
We live in an interconnected world and are influenced everyday by globalisation through the food we eat, the music we listen to, what we buy, what we drink, how and with whom we communicate, and how we live. Through this training, we will look at Globalisation – the issues, the opportunities and challenges – what brings the world together and how global issues and relationships (both seen, and unseen) are relevant to youth work in Ireland.
