Let's Travel the world

Global education is a creative approach of bringing about change in our society.

Global education is an active learning process based on the universal values of tolerance, solidarity, equality, justice, inclusion, co-operation and non-violence.

Global education begins with raising awareness of global challenges such as poverty or the inequailites caused by the uneven distribution of resources, environmental degradation, violent conflicts or human rights, thus creating deeper understanding of the complexity of the underlying causes. It aims to change peopleā€˜s attitudes by them reflecting on their own roles in the world. Global education motivates and empowers people to become active, responsible global citizens.

  • global justice
