Acteurs du territoire pour une éducation à la citoyenneté mondiale
Start date: Sep 1, 2015, End date: Aug 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Education for Global Citizenship gives keys to understanding environmental, economic, social and cultural interdependencies all over the world, and contributes to the education of citizens. It strengthens social cohesion and capacity to act of the people.Carried out in many European countries by motivated teachers, informal education organizations and local authorities, it is still fragmented, scattered and poorly organized. As a consequence it needs to be recognized as part of an interdisciplinary and systemic approach.Our project brings together partners from European territories to build a collaborative and transdisciplinary approach to establish and develop training for sustainable development and solidarity. It is aimed at improving the quality and the relevance of educational tools and structuring the acquisition of transversal skills.Our partnerships was inspired by the outputs of the “Des Alpes au Sahel” project and REDDSO which initiated exchanges between community and local actors in formal and non-formal education. Their goal was sustainable development and international solidarity. Our new partnership is enriched by the participation of a Romanian region, the Judet of Dolj (South-West Oltenia region).Our objectives are clear and easily measurable. We wish to improve the quality of educational programs by developing an innovative approach and new teaching practices in order to develop the skills of young people in that field and the quality of public education policies as well. We also want to enrich the educational offer for teachers through the implementation of online training modules, co-develop training contents of Education for Sustainable Development and International Solidarity, especially through distance trainings aimed at educators.This project will also enable the mobility of young people, and that of "multipliers" to promote the spirit of mobility and develop methods and training systems, to regionalize the issues the project tackles especially with EGD-IS, to promote the exchange of good practices related to REDDSO.The participants are three local governments: Piedmont Region (Italy), Rhône Alpes (France), South-West Oltenia Regional development Agency Judet of Dolj (Romania), three universities: University of Craiova, Faculty of Education Turin, Lyon ESPE, three “Rectorats”: Lyon, Grenoble, Inspectorate Dolj, schools of the three “académie” but also international solidarity networks such as RESACOOP and COP associations. The activities planned are the production of knowledge and know-hows, the definition of the EGC-IS impacts and its added value on the targeted audiences; integration of skills in the youth’s and the trainers’ curriculums, integrating international solidarity in education training for sustainable development; diversification of university training curriculums; to boost the practices of informal education, organize the methods and content of EGC-IS approaches.Planning of training courses and tools: the trainers, teachers and project developers will be trained; practice exchange, sharing of methods, enrichment and dissemination of practices, organization of national and international workshops, development of remote digital teaching tools, via a common platform including French and Italian regions to strengthen the educational offer. The applications will be available on tablets, smartphone and online courses.Dissemination of the productions: national and international workshop will be organized in order to share approaches and knowledge of EGC-IS. Digital tools will be used. Trainers, teachers, facilitators and students will be invited to these events to share and the impacts and outputs.Development of assessment indicators: indicators will be set up to measure the impact on all the participants (youth, educators, communities, local networks).Description of results, impacts and benefits: the beneficiaries are able, in the framework of an intercultural approach, to question the vision of their partners on common issues (water, environment, food, health, human rights, good governance ...). They’ll acquire citizens’ skills and habits to live together. They’ll recognize all the actors of the educational community. In schools, eco-delegates will collect and convey information and tools, ensuring the link with the community and the dissemination of innovations.Transferable skills will be strengthened. Digital tools will provide an easy access to EGC-IS and make it more attractive. Then teachers and trainers will be able develop a transversal approach to teaching. The professionals of formal and non-formal education will exchange their practices and become a real task force. Communities will apply the new approaches on education for sustainable development and international solidarity into their policies for schools and universities.
