A World of Difference

Young people have shown their concern about the inequalities that exist in the world for many years. This key report by the DEA argued that this concern needed to be recognised with the youth service through closer cooperation with non-governmental organisations working in development and youth work.

Through a series of interviews with leading NGOs, voluntary youth organisations and local authority officers, the report recommended the need for a coordinated training programme, production of more resources aimed specifically at the youth work sector, and recognition by national and local government of the importance of global perspectives and connections in youth work.

Essential reading for anyone interested in the history and development of this field of work, the report established the concept and key elements of ‘global youth work’ and has formed the basis of the DEA’s youth work initiatives, as well as many of our partners, to date.
