Last November, the Get up and goals! team took part in the global event Envision 4.7 in Helsinki.
We brought our contribution to Global Citizenship Education, facilitating a workshop called Innovation in teaching GCE: challenges and solutions. The workshop explored innovative and replicable educational models and resources in teaching GCE and tools to face contemporary world challenges. Participants examined the self-assessment tool for global and sustainable schools, including six schools’ life areas and related indicators, as well as our innovative geo-history textbook for Schools, A global History of humanity, based on world history approach, which is available for free download here.
Additionally, we discussed about how educators and stakeholders of different subjects can support the active engagement of citizens within their communities and structural links between formal education and GCE.
We warmly thank Get up and goals! representatives who shared experiences, comments and suggestions with other participants coming from all over the world in order to spread he implementation of Target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals:
“By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development."
