YUVA X WOSDEC
Yuva Association was founded in 2010 with the aim of generating holistic sustainable solutions to environmental problems, education, and social issues both in Turkey and in the world. As YUVA, we work to support the personal development of adults and young people through lifelong learning, to increase their awareness regarding the environment and to contribute to the eradication of poverty. Our aim is to provide a sustainable life for all living beings.
WOSDEC (West of Scotland Development Education Centre) is a small not-for-profit organisation with the aim of transforming teaching and learning. We work towards these goals by supporting educators throughout the West of Scotland to develop their skills in Global Citizenship Education, an approach to empower young people to act as global citizens, able and committed to shaping a just and sustainable future for all, locally and globally.
As well as facilitating accredited training courses for teachers at all stages of their career, we design and publish Global Citizenship Education resources for teachers, connecting with literacy, science and the arts. We also support the development of equitable overseas school partnerships.
We are one of five Development Education Centres in Scotland, and key members of the International Development Education Association of Scotland (www.ideas-forum.org.uk).
