Building a World of Justice and Solidarity:
Global Education in the School System

LISBON 2018 International Conference

Workshop 

A3. Global Education in changing school ethos and culture

Global Education may change students and teachers – in the process it also changes school ethos and culture. Educational research points to the important role of school ethos and culture in the process of educational change. But have those involved in Global Education strategy and policy begun to recognise the possibility for system-wide change that is available in the integration of Global Education and justice perspectives into the processes of whole school planning, school inspection, the development of school ethos and culture? This workshop will give participants the opportunity to share concrete experiences and promote discussion on how Global Education can contribute to changing school ethos and culture towards justice and solidarity. What changes were observed in specific cases and what other changes may be expected? How does that reflect in the school practices? These and/or other questions will be explored in this workshop based on the experience of speakers and participants.
