80:20 Educating and Acting for a Better World is a development education organisation promoting popular education on human development and human rights rooted in that sector and its history for over 20 years.
For 80:20, education is fundamental to understanding the shape and nature of our unequal world, to interacting with that world as well as to imagining and shaping a different world.
As such the organisation has a primary core focus on the intrinsic links and challenges between international development co-operation (broadly defined) and development education.
80:20 is an independent non-governmental organisation seeking to articulate and promote the voices and interests of the world’s poor, marginalised and excluded. It seeks to participate in and reﬂect a civil society agenda as regards Ireland’s role and responsibilities in the world.
