Rural GCE

Training Material for GCE in rural areas

Short Description
Global Citizenship Education (GCE) aims to empower learners to engage behaviors and the mentality of being active citizens, locally and globally, creating a more just and inclusive sustainable world. However, GCE in Rural Areas shows an increasing need of new approach towards the tools and methodology of GCE due to the rapidly changing understanding of citizenship and shifting cultural diversity.
Therefore, this project aims to introduce outputs to motivate people to become active citizens of their communities and to branch out into the wider context. Its objective is to build on the existing teaching practices and improve the related tools, approaches and previous transnational practices to:
– Provide better opportunities and materials to the educators that are implementing activities in the field of education in rural areas
– Contribute towards an easier approach and reach of the process of citizens participation, specifically in rural areas within Europe.
The overall goal of the project is to promote the social entrepreneurship mindset for adults in such a way as to become ambassadors and innovators of sustainable development and growth in their communities using environmental and cultural challenges.
