After the very successful Workshop on Global Citizenship and Sustainable Development a second one, with expanded participation, was organized on the 24th of June 2014 in the premises of University of Nicosia with collaboration from the Cyprus Youth Council. The workshop was entitled “Education for all” and it was linked with the 2nd Millennium Development Goal of “Achieving Universal Primary Education”. It also touched on the concept of Education and its permeation of all parts of Development process and as the necessary catalyst for positive change. The workshops are operated under the framework of the INJAWARA project (injawara.eu) or Intercultural Joint Awareness Raising Action.
The trainer presented the project and CARDET, the organization running it in Cyprus, so that participants are familiar with both the Non-Government Organization and INJAWARA. Participants included local stakeholders like CSOs, students in pedagogical departments of universities, pre-school and primary school teachers and educators.
The activities initiated with a discussion of what is the definition of education and what are its desirable outcomes. Participants proved highly engaging, which in turn provided sophisticated arguments like knowledge, skills, social inclusion and evolution of the public discourse.
In the framework of the INJAWARA (injawara.eu) project, a workshop was organized with the collaboration of Accept-LGBT Cyprus (accept.org.cy). Main objectives of the workshop was the awareness raising on global citizenship and its connection to development. The workshop started with a get to know each other session where participants were asked to present themselves and to discuss their expectation of the workshop.
