Job in global development help

I'm going for a job as an education officer in a global development and citizenship department of our local council. It is not exactly my field but it is in my area, the right hours and reasonable pay. It also fits well with my teaching and communication/presentation skills. So folks, what global issues do you think I should be swatting up on. I have not started this thread as a debate so no arguing. I just want ideas of where and what to look at.

Bum! this means a lot of swatting up doesn't it. Only one reply out of forty odd people though. this is obviously an area that people don't think about too much. Guess the job is going to be quite an uphill task.
Oh!!!!! my youngest son has just spilled a glass of milk onto my crotch after reading what I was typing over my shoulder. I now look like I should have been wearing a Tenner Lady but wasn't. I love children.

You may call upon me at any time. I, unlike most of the   Rodentia trolls on this site, have a social consciousness that is well developed.
