GLOBAL EDUCATION GUIDELINES
The Global Education guidelines is meant to be a pedagogical tool to support educators from formal and non-formal systems to understand and put into practice global education activities in their respective contexts.
By presenting global education philosophy and content, related methodology and evaluation issues and by sharing existing practice, tools, resources and bibliography, the guidelines aims at strengthening global education fundamentals and practices.
The guidelines is built up on achievements in global education (GE) led by the North-South Centre (NSC) GE programme such as :
. the GE networking process for the improvement of GE in CoE member states initiated through the Global Education Week (GEW) network ;
. the delivery of two core GE referential documents : the GE charter (1997) and the Maastricht Declaration-Global Education in Europe to 2015, Strategy, Policies and Perspectives (2002).
The global education guidelines complements NSC global education pedagogical existing tools (GEW website, newsletter, publications) offering education practitioners a systemic approach about the understanding and practice of global education.
It also creates a base for the global education on-line training course which modules cover all dimensions of global education - development education, human rights education, education for sustainability, education for peace and conflict prevention and intercultural education – and which process is developed in partnership with relevant interlocutors within the Education Directorate of the Council of Europe (DGIV/CoE) and with NSC/CoE European and international partners. Such global education training course targets educators from formal and non-formal education, policy-makers and media professionals.
Finally, the guidelines complements EDC-HRE pedagogical tools and offers a framework for future pedagogical tools to be designed in the context of the intercultural dialogue process initiated by the Council of Europe.
The guidelines, built up on the Global Education Maastricht declaration, creates also a base for a global education policy instrument such a GE recommendation to be endorsed by the CoE Committee of Ministers.
