Development for whom or 'conquest' education?

Where on EARTH do we in Ireland get our tropical timber from? Learn about the rainforest by meeting some native peoples, seeing where and how they live! Visit our Wood of Life exhibition and learn just how dependant Ireland is on the world's forests.

There you go! – Survival’s cartoon book – takes a satirical swipe at the ‘development’ of tribal peoples.

With beautiful illustrations and wry humour, Oren Ginzburg tells the story of how tribal peoples are being destroyed in the name of ‘development’.

 Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said of the cartoon,

"This little book contains the big message that we must avoid the arrogance of presuming to know what’s best for those whose voices are not heard in global debates. It reminds us of our shared responsibility to see to it that all people are active participants in shaping the decisions that impact their lives. Only then can we hope to see real development."
