- The SDG Advocate Training brings together a team of 26 adult educators with different life experience, skills and perspectives to share in the motivation, design and action for a more just and sustainable future.
- Individual and group Coaching and Mentoring will be provided throughout the journey, to support the design and delivery of informed Action Projects.
Development Perspectives has partnered with AONTAS, Concern Worldwide, Irish Rural Link and the Department of Adult and Community Education at Maynooth University to deliver SAOLTA, a strategic partnership with Irish Aid.
