What we do
Our staff and volunteers work in partnership with schools, higher and further education colleges, community and faith groups to support and encourage global learning.
At the One World Centre you will find books, magazines, teaching packs, DVDs and games on global issues for use in schools and the community. Most items are available for loan.
The materials in our Resource Centre cover a wide range of global issues:
We are based at 189 Princes Street, Dundee. We are usually open Monday-Thursday 10am-4pm and at other times by arrangement.
The Centre is part of the International Development Education Association of Scotland (IDEAS). This is a network of over 40 organisations and individuals involved in Development Education and Education for Global Citizenship across Scotland.

Our activies are often described as Development Education or Education for Global Citizenship. As such, we challenge stereotypes, advocate equality in resource and power distribution, encourage sustainable development, promote peaceful solutions to conflicts, celebrate diversity, and help people to understand the causes of poverty and the complexity of the global issues we face.
