Promoting Global Development Education in Cyprus

Promoting Global Development Education in Cyprus

Global Education is understood as a holistic education dealing with the growing interconnectedness between local and global realities.

Global Education aims at enabling learners to understand world issues while empowering them with knowledge, skills, values and attitudes desirable for world citizens to face global problems.

The overview of the project is to develop, enhance and sustain strategies, competence development and capacity-building for global education, targeting institutions and practitioners from the formal and non-formal educational sector.

CARDET coordinates nationally a network of practitioners to share strategies and practices for increased and improved global education. This networking process is supported through an annual awareness-raising event (Global Education Week), a webpage and social media.

This project is the sole responsibility of the North-South Centre and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union. The European Union is made up of 28 Member States who have decided to gradually link together their know-how, resources and destinies. Together, during a period of enlargement of 50 years, they have built a zone of stability, democracy and sustainable development whilst maintaining cultural diversity, tolerance and individual freedoms. The European Union is committed to sharing its achievements and its values with countries and peoples beyond its borders.
