Promoting global citizenship education in schools

“Global Citizenship Education (GCED) aims to empower learners of all ages to assume active roles, both locally and globally, in building more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure societies”
UNESCO

Politeia Project

POLITEIA is an Erasmus+ project that aims to address the gap in the provision of global citizenship education in secondary schools and to support teachers to promote and integrate global citizenship in their teaching, in the U.K., Greece, Portugal, Slovenia and Cyprus.
The project seeks to build an innovative, tailored training course addressed to teachers to allow them to confidently bring global citizenship issues in the classroom, integrate its themes and values in the citizenship course or across curricula and ignite students’ interest in global citizenship.

How will POLITEIA achieve
its goal?
