80:20 Educating and Acting for a Better World

80:20 Educating and Acting for a Better World is an Irish-based registered charity founded in 1996 promoting popular education on human development and human rights.

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. Education does this in 3 important ways:

It creates choice
When we understand what is going in our world our range of choices increase.

It generates capacity
When we have been supported in doing something in a hands on way, we are better equiped to go and do it for ourselve.

It supplies motivation
When we understand and feel what a denial of human rights means in people's lives we will care enough to do something about it.

80:20 believes in using education to enable people to change their world for the better.
