Resources for teachers and students

Whether you are a teacher looking for information, a student working on a project or just a passerby, we have something for you!

Our new resources are designed to help teachers and students navigate through development issues whilst linking in to subjects such as Geography, English, CSPE and RE. Each resource has three easy to follow activities and action points to be carried out as a class group. To find out more about our resources, email [email protected]

Rainbow resources

Activities and information for teachers and facilitators to address issues link to the Sustainable Development Goals. Suitable for upper primary and post primary aged students.

Country Profiles

Below you can find fact files about the countries which Concern works in. Perfect for CSPE projects, Geography or just to find out a little more about the world we live in.

Hunger Heroes

‘Hunger Heroes' is Concern’s newest programme aimed at Junior Cycle/ TY students. Teachers will receive fun superhero themed packs full of games, lesson plans and information on issues of hunger and food waste. The programme encourages students to connect local issues of food wastage to global problems of world hunger by undertaking a variety of school activities and one fundraiser to become a HUNGER HERO!

For participating schools, each student will receive a Hunger Hero certificate of participation and a Super School certificate for each school.

Wristbands, pens and exclusive Hunger Hero capes are available for participating schools. Contact School Programme Officer Lauren Wright [email protected] for more details.

Everyday Activism

Concern has produced this handbook to stimulate discussion and debate on the challenge of being active for economic, social and political change. Concern is part of a larger international movement that has contributed to the very significant progress made in recent decades on hunger, poverty, human rights and human development that has transformed the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people.

We need your continued activism to continue the journey.
