Leeds Development Education Centre is an educational charity which has been raising awareness of global sustainable development issues with people in West Yorkshire for over 30 years.

We are the leading provider of global learning services in West Yorkshire with one of the biggest selections of citizenship resources on topics such as fair trade, human rights, sustainability and social justice.


Leeds DEC does a terrific job in reminding us all of what we share in common on this small and fragile planet of ours. The fight against poverty and for justice is one we should all get involved in
