LISBON 2018 International Conference

Workshop 

B3. Global Education and relationship between the school and the community

Establishing relations between the school and the community – local and global – with citizens’ organisations and movements, is key for global learning. This engagement can strengthen the communities and can create in the school a deeper knowledge of global and local issues affecting people’s lives. How can the community learn about what are, in theory and in practice, the meanings of Global Education both inside and outside the school? Will the community support Global Education learnings at school? What are the possibilities for mutual learning, the good practice principles, and the challenges to be addressed? This workshop will discuss, based on the sharing of diverse experiences, how the school engages with local and global civil society and with civil society organisations.
