LISBON 2018 International Conference

Workshop 

A5. Global Education National Strategies

Several countries have developed national strategies in this field (either using the concept of Global Education or a similar one) as a tool to increase political recognition and to improve critical reflection and practice. What were the objectives inscribed in national strategies and their implications for formal education systems? What was achieved so far and what was not? What are the main challenges? What benefits arise from the involvement of the formal education sector in the process of development and implementation of a GE national strategy? While not every country needs a strategy, this workshop is an opportunity for participants to present their country experiences and to assess the power of a national strategy to transform formal education system and foster critical reflexion.
