Background of the project:
Global education is education that opens people’s eyes to the realities of the world, and awakens them to bring about a world of greater justice, equity and human rights for all. Global education opens people’s eyes to visions of a more just and equitable interdependent world, and empowers them to participate in its emergence.
The methodology of Global Education focuses on supporting active learning and encouraging reflection with active participation of learners and educators. It celebrates and promotes diversity and respect for others and encourages learners to make their choices in their own context in relation to the global context.
This project was created (by A.R.T. Fusion Association) to answer to a need that was detected in our global society where the efforts for N-S cooperation among youth structures, exchange and mutual initiatives are not being supported enough. This project will offer the opportunity for youth workers and leaders to explore deeper global topics, interdependency and sustainably, as well how to bring these important dimensions in their work, to their beneficiaries trough advance facilitation and training skills (necessary for a quality management of global education processes)
Partners involved in the project are coming from Romania, Italy, Spain (from Europe side) and Mozambique, Tanzania and Togo (from Africa Side)
The main goal of the project is to increase the capacity of youth organizations to raise the level of global citizenship competencies among young people in European and African societies
