“Education for Global Responsibility II” is a follow-up to the strategic partnership with the same title implemented by three partners in this consortium and led by the Danish United Nations Associations between 2015 and 2018.
The first project yielded qualitative results and demonstrated that mainstreaming global responsibility in the youth sector is a need and an interest.
The partners in this consortium capitalize on the achievements of the previous project with the goal of strengthening global responsibility education in the youth sector in Europe. To achieve their goal, the partners have agreed on the following objectives:
1. By the end of the project, improve the capacity of at least 196 youth workers from all partner organizations to promote global responsibility among youth in their local communities;
2. By the end of the project, certify at least 90 youth organizations within the consortium as globally responsible institutions;
3. Strengthen a transnational partnership among stakeholders in all sectors to integrate global responsibility education into the nonformal sector.
The project will yield the following results:
– 16 youth workers from Cyprus, Romania, Slovenia, Poland, Italy, Macedonia, UK and Germany will be trained to use nonformal education methods in global responsibility education.
– 16 youth workers trained to administer the certification system in global responsibility education who will operate for at least 12 months after the end of the project.
– At least four other transnational initiatives promoting global responsibility education and the certification system;
– At least nine other global responsibility education best practices will be shared among participants;
– at least 180 other youth workers in partner countries (20 youth workers/country) trained to include global responsibility education in their educational programs by at least 90 other youth organizations in partner countries.
– at least 90 youth organizations certified as global accountability institutions.
– a handbook on global responsibility education, including 40 nonformal educational methods; a 3-day activity program to promote global responsibility among youth; and at least 10 other best practices for promoting/working with global responsibility education.
– Various promotional materials for global responsibility; Global responsibility education and certification system.
– A Charter on Global Responsibility Education setting out visions and actions for cross-sectoral Global Responsibility Education, signed by at least 20 stakeholders from at least three sectors, e.g., business; adult education, school sector, VET sector, decision makers.
In terms of impact, the project is expected to increase the capacity of youth organizations in Europe to provide global responsibility education to young people, leading to a strengthening of nonformal education. At the same time, the reached organizations will have to revise their routines/habits by becoming an example of globally responsible institutions.
Youth reached through dissemination and multiplication activities will strengthen a sense of global responsibility and skills to evaluate, from a global perspective, the effects of local actions and processes, as well as a greater awareness of their individual and collective global responsibilities.
The consortium includes six partner organizations that did not participate in the previous project and three partners from the previous consortium. The consortium is a partnership of five youth organizations, three social enterprises and a research institute, which is an example of a partnership to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as agreed by the world, including the EU, and stipulated in the 2030 Agenda.
