Our vision is a world where power and resources are more equitably shared amongst the world’s people, where human rights are valued and respected, and where people are living sustainable lifestyles within the environmental limits of the planet. We promote and practise Global Citizenship Education by supporting teachers, schools and community groups in Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross with professional learning and the provision of mentoring, advice and resources.
Being a trustee offers the opportunity for professional development. It can let you gain experience of strategy and leadership, and boost your CV. It will give you experience of influencing direction and managing risk.
The objectives of the OWC are to promote Development Education and: a) to enable people to understand the links between their own lives and those of people throughout the world b) to increase understanding of the economic, social, political, cultural and environmental forces which shape all our lives c) to enable people to find ways to bring about change by acting locally to create a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.
