Stand.ie was set up in 2014 in response to the desire among students and young people in Ireland to learn more about global issues and take action. Our participants come from a range of backgrounds but all have one thing in common: the desire to bring about positive change in the world. We are a not-for-profit initiative by Suas Educational Development.
STAND celebrates the power of ordinary people to change the world. Here you can share your ideas, learn more about global issues, and find out what you – as an individual and by coming together – can do to take positive action.
Our team of editors and contributors believe in the power of sharing stories that celebrate ordinary people working to make the world a better place. We welcome contributions from anyone who is passionate about positive change!
WE BELIEVE IN
Standing against injustice and inequality in all its forms
People in Ireland and all over the globe are fighting for a more equal and just society. We are committed to sharing their stories and adding our voices to theirs.
Standing together with those who are oppressed
Millions of people worldwide are facing intolerance and persecution, fleeing violence and war, living in poverty and dying of hunger. We are committed to showing solidarity with them.
Standing up for a better, fairer world.
Our actions have the power to change the world. We are committed to exploring the ways in which we can all come together as global citizens to take action for social and environmental justice.
