The 17th edition of the Global Education Week, facilitated by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe will be held from the 14th to the 22nd of November 2015, under the theme:
" Make Equality Real "
All schools and Youth organisations, as well as any other interested constituencies in the Council of Europe's member States, are invited to take part in the event. School links and networking with partners in the South are vividly encouraged. Global Education Week invites students, educators and youth groups to implement a global education awareness-raising project. Projects can be sent to the North-South Centre to be posted on the Centre's web-site during Global Education Week in order to encourage networking and the sharing of experiences. These projects can, of course, be sent all year round, as the web page is updated regularly.
These projects should address issues of diversity and inequality at a local as well as at global level, using the Millennium Development Goals as a guiding principle to 2015, and involve an understanding of the core issues of global citizenship:
- awareness of the wider world and of our own role as a world citizens;
- attitudes of respect for diversity and intercultural communication skills;
- ability to take action to make the world a more equitable and sustainable place;
- responsibility for our own actions.
