Tullamore College hosts development education (DE) workshops in Tullamore

Over 100 Offaly students took part in a series of workshops that explored our relationship with global issues of poverty, climate change, gender equality, responsible consumerism, natural resource sustainability and security of natural resources.

21st November 2014

Tullamore College in association with Banagher College and Oaklands College in Edenderry organised a series of development education (DE) workshops in the Court Hotel, Tullamore, Co Offaly. Over 100 students took part in a series of workshops that explored our relationship with global issues of poverty, climate change, gender equality, responsible consumerism, natural resource sustainability and security of natural resources.

The event was hosted by Laois and Offaly ETB and coordinated by Fiona Graham, Transition Year coordinator at Tullamore College.


According to Ms. Graham, “The purpose of the day’s events was to help students to engage in analysis, reflection and action for local and global citizenship and participation by enabling learners to recognise the interconnected nature of our lives and the lives of people in the global South.”

Workshop facilitators at the event included Dorothy Jacobs, Patsy Toland and Jesse Jacobs from Self Help Africa, Liam Kilbride of the Presentation Sisters (retired) and Tom Roche from Tullamore-based development education group Just Forests.
