This publication has as a main goal to provide a framework of competencies young people around Europe need to further develop and strengthen, so they can cope better in an interconnected globalized world. These competencies are listed and explained in details in the next chapter. Furthermore, we aim to provide not only the vision, but also the practical tools to go there. For this reason the main part of this publication offers a number of educational tools which are aimed at supporting young learners in their paths towards active and responsible global citizenship. These tools are clustered in four training modules around the themes of Environment, Technology, Moving and Stuff.
Global Citizenship Education is an active learning process which aims to foster changes in our society. It is a problem-based learning process which encourages people to ask questions, reflect on issues that do not have absolute answers and explore the complexity of real-world situations. Furthermore, it encourages every learner to take action towards global change.
In order to educate global citizens who are not only aware of world realities, but are also able to act and make a difference in the society, GlobaLab follows a 6-steps approach to global citizenship. This concept of the global citizenship education process includes key elements that need to be gained by young people in order to become promoters of global solidarity and justice and to be able to take action towards a more just and sustainable world.
The project was implemented by Global Citizens’ Academy/GCA (Lithuania), Pro European Network (Bulgaria), Cazalla Intercultural (Spain).
