Global Citizenship and Development ‘Think global, act local!’
What is Global Citizenship?
How global citizenship fits in development principles?
How is Global Citizenship expressed?
The 21st century has presented us with new opportunities and challenges and requires a different approach to education. In our fast-changing world, it is necessary for young people to acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to adapt. Global citizenship will help to ensure that young people are able to play a full and active part in society within the wider world.
These questions and many more will be answered to the workshop organized by CARDET (www.cardet.org) with ACCEPT in the framework of “Intercultural Joint Awareness Raising – In.J.Awa.Ra” project which promotes the intercultural dialogue among the Global Youth (www.injawara.eu).

The workshop is for FREE. New skills in an interactive workshop delivered from professional trainers.
