We help people to understand and act on global issues. We believe in a world that is just and sustainable for everyone. Our mission is to enable people to understand and think critically about global issues, motivating and encouraging us all to act for a more just and sustainable world.
Each month we are shining a spotlight on the work of one of our member organisations.
This month’s spotlight is on Leeds Development Education Centre (DEC), a charity committed to educating for a just and sustainable world.
They use child centred approaches to inspire the next generation, in addition to working with educators to skill them up to teach about social justice issues.
Please read more about their work here.

“Think Global was one of the first charities I engaged with when I entered Parliament. With a Crossbench group of peers I took part in the “Live below the Line” challenge to highlight that many live on less than £1 a day. This highlights the practical approach that Think Global brings to their work, and which as a teacher I know makes issues come alive for pupils learning about global issues.”
“It only makes sense to nurture our pupils as global citizens in the multi-cultural metropolis that is London, particularly as they are growing up in an increasingly globalised world. These are the generations that are in need of the knowledge and skills to navigate their way towards a more just and sustainable way of living for all.”
