This revised learning resource is designed to inspire and support schools to study the life and legacy of Scotland’s famous missionary, explorer and abolitionist, Dr David Livingstone.
The original resource was compiled by the National Trust for Scotland, and many of the original learning activities remain.
This revision has been compiled by David Livingstone Birthplace (DLB) and the West of Scotland Development Education Centre (WOSDEC).
This resource can be downloaded as a single PDF file (Global Citizenship Learning Resource) or as nine individual PDF files.
