Who are we…

Cumbria Development Education Centre is a registered charity that inspires young people and their teachers to engage with the environment , take responsibility – individually and together – for the world in which they live, and contribute towards a fair and sustainable world.

Our vision is for young people to have the skills and confidence to be able to face the challenges of today, to develop understanding and respect other people and places, and to make informed choices that have a positive impact on society and the world around them.

We work in partnership with teachers and young people to provide activities that encourage critical thinking and global awareness.

Cumbria Development Education Centre is a member of the Consortium of Development Education Centres, one of a network of around 30 Development Education Centres across England.
