North-South Centre - European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity

Nº 66 | June 2009

Global Education News is an electronic newsletter where national global education coordinators or practitioners can share global education news and best practices, useful thematic links and educational materials. It also serves as a medium for the North-South Centre global education network national coordinators' own use.

    Dear friends,

    The North-South Centre is glad to share with you its new Global Education on-line training course which will be offered from 20 July to 15 August. While complementing the Global Education Guidelines pedagogical purpose, this e-learning course reinforces the growing North-South Centre training policy. In this field, we are happy to share with you the outcomes of the first Europe-Africa University on Youth & Development, a sister University of the well-known Mollina University on Youth & Development. Meanwhile, explore in this newsletter intercultural and interreligious dialogue related useful links (§3) and resources (§4) as well as interesting offers (§5) events, conferences (§6) and campaigns (§8).

    Wishing you a captivating and enjoyable reading!
