World's Web: the Global Education Pack for Work with Young People

Designed for use by adults working with young people, this pack starts from the premise that young people need simple, "but not simplistic", introductions to global issues. It aims to replace feelings of powerlessness with an awareness of the possibilities of change. The 10 areas include gender, drugs, housing, discrimination and sex, and provide facts, activities, questions and discussion starters. Pounds 9.95, Education Unit, Save the Children, 17 Grove Lane, London SE5 8RD. Tel: 0171 703 5400.
