About Leeds DEC

As the world becomes increasingly interdependent, we believe that every person has the right to understand and actively take part in the process of development and change which affects their lives. To enable this to happen, our mission is to:

    • Engage individuals in global learning to promote critical awareness of personal, local and global development
    • Empower individuals to participate in the process of sustainable global development and in decision making at all levels of society
    • Challenge and change the values, attitudes and structures which reinforce global poverty and inequality
