Working in the community

For a number of years IDEAS supported the work of a range of community organisations which came together under the banner of the Community Forum.

Joint projects included:

  • a series of four Action and Ideas Roadshows. Workshop sessions took place across the country, demonstrating how the global dimension can be an integral part of community learning.
  • the production of a Global Resources Catalogue which highlights activities for adult and youth groups.
  • contributing to national publications including 'Think Local Act Global– International Education in Communities'.

Funding constraints have meant that, in the recent years, IDEAS has been unable to appoint a co-ordinator to bring community organisations together. Nevertheless, positive work is taking place among member organisations and a new task group has been formed to take this forward.
