WHAT DO WE DO?
We want to ensure our county is filled with global citizens, and aim to achieve this by providing global learning. CDEC works with schools, communities and businesses to provide global learning.
CDEC, our work involves:
- delivering continuing professional development (CPD) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) training as well as classroom and workshop sessions for children and young people
- providing advice, a network of support and resources for schools and organisations
- running community-based projects that engage and support those living in Cumbria
- working in partnership with a range of organisations to encourage thinking about, and action on, local and global issues.
WHAT IS THE CDEC FRIENDS SCHEME?
Our Friends of CDEC scheme offers individuals a way to financially support us and our work to inspire the next generation of global citizens through either regular or one-off donations through the year.
We depend on grants and donations to fund our work within schools, communities and organisations. CDEC Friends can choose how much they wish to be involved beyond supporting us financially. For example, they can decide how much they would like to be updated about CDEC's work; they can opt to see us at work; and they can also choose to come along to our project and networking events. We have an active community at CDEC and, as a Friend, we would always be delighted to welcome you.
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?
Your support enables us to work with Cumbrian people from all backgrounds to become conscious. aware, proactive global citizens. We also support communities to become stronger, more resilient and empowered; particularly in relation to their needs around climate change and migration. Our approach nurtures relationships and connections- to people, place and planet- so that our Cumbrian communities are beacons of global citizenship.
"Cumbria has been one of the most successful counties in England in promoting global learning in recent years." - Professor Douglas Bourn, University College London-Institute of Education.
