About this event 

This event has been organised to present and debate the content of Issue 34 of the Centre for Global Education’s bi-annual, open access, peer reviewed journal Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review.  The theme of this issue is ‘Development Education and Health’ which is a ground-breaking topic for Policy and Practice that has not been previously covered by the journal. Three of the articles published in Issue 34 will be presented at this seminar and address a diverse range of topics including: integrating planetary health into the Irish medical curriculum; ensuring COVID-19 vaccine equity for countries in the global South; and using development education methodologies to encourage active global citizenship in the National Health Service in Scotland. The seminar will enable authors to debate their articles with readers and facilitate discussion on good practice in development education.  Each speaker will present their articles for 10-15mins followed by discussion.
