The OWC is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation which provides transformative education, with the aim of encouraging and supporting an active and engaged citizenship, and a just and sustainable future for all.
The OWC specialises in equipping people to make a positive difference in an increasingly challenging and interconnected world. Through a range of workshops and consultations designed to meet the needs of the people we work with, the OWC provides professional education that fosters responsible and skilled global citizenship.
The OWC provides professional development and resources for early childhood, primary and secondary educators throughout Western Australia who wish to incorporate global education in their teaching programs. The OWC can also provide professional education in universities and the private, government and community sector.
The Centre houses a comprehensive library of global education resources – books, teaching kits, posters and audio-visual materials, which are available for loan to members throughout Western Australia.
The One World Centre is also involved in local community engagement projects relating to global issues, and collaborates with other organisations working in the areas of development, human rights and global sustainability.
