For all global citizenship development

  • Global citizenship education report launched

    A major new report on monitoring Education for Global Citizenship has been launched by the Development Awareness Raising and Education Forum (DARE Forum) of CONCORD at the UNESCO Forum on Global Citizenship Education in Paris – with a view to making sure that the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals include a focus on the quality of education for global change.

  • New award announced for learning for sustainability

    The Scottish Education Awards have launched several new categories of award for this year, including learning for sustainability, and we encourage members and teachers to come forward with any great examples in this field.
