STAND Global Issues is a part-time evening course that focuses on the interdependent and unequal world in which we live, through a process of interactive learning, debate, action and reflection.
We all want to live in a fairer and more just society, but when the world’s eight richest people control the same wealth between them as the poorest half of the world’s population, it can be hard to know where to start to tackle inequality. These interactive evenings will deepen your understanding of issues related to globalisation and development, introduce you to like-minded, passionate peers, and ultimately help you understand yourself and your role in bringing about change.
The courses run in autumn for one evening a week, for seven weeks, at Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University, University College Dublin, Maynooth University, NUI Galway and University College Cork. We welcome students from all disciplines to apply and no prior knowledge of development issues is needed. The course costs just €25, thanks to the support of Irish Aid. Places are limited to 30 per course and allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
