UK Public Attitudes to Development Building New Responses: Toolkit

UK Public Attitudes to Development Building New Responses: Toolkit

Between January and March 2015 individuals from the international development sector joined together to participate in the course ‘UK Public Attitudes to Development: Building New Responses’. The course was led by Think Global in collaboration with Bond, and included face to face training sessions, webinars and working groups. It was funded by the DEEEP4 project. DEEEP was initiated by the Development Awareness Raising and Education Forum (DARE Forum) of CONCORD and is co-funded by the European Union. The group successfully connected, shared and learned from each other and the practical outcomes of the course are summarised in this toolkit.
