  • Global Education Derby

    Global Education Derby is a specialist educational organisation, working across Derby, Derbyshire and the East Midlands encouraging active participation in initiatives that address global poverty and environmental degradation. They work with teachers, youth workers, and other educators to promote increased awareness of the importance of global citizenship in the lives of young people, and to offer opportunities for reflective, creative and innovative work that develop the themes of sustainable development within the policies and practices of the education system.

  • Leicester Masaya Link Group

    Leicester Masaya Link Group (LMLG) co-ordinates the town twinning link between Leicester and the city of Masaya in Nicaragua. We work towards the relief of poverty by supporting partnerships for sustainable development in the Masaya region and we help to raise awareness of global issues through educational projects across all sectors of the community in Leicester and the surrounding area.

    The LMLG uses the link and its first hand knowledge of Nicaragua to provide a rich source of materials to support global citizenship and education for sustainable development. Working in both formal and informal sectors, the LMLG delivers projects in schools, provides in-service training and runs activities for youth groups as well as awareness raising events aimed at increasing local understanding of development issues.
