Descripción de la oferta

General framework

The GET project, co-funded by the European Commission, aims at enhancing the capacity of formal education systems in 8 European countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain) to support students and teachers to develop a sense of co-responsibility for local and global sustainable development and, specifically 4 global challenges (Climate Change, Gender Inequalities, Global Inequalities and Migration) through the application of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) approaches in schools.

In the case of Spain, the project is implemented in several Autonomous Communities and in each of them it will focus on the analysis of their regional authorities and the regulations and planning tools applicable to their own education system, given the decentralisation of public policies and taking into account the adaptation to the particularities and needs of their population. For the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, the local partner of the project is the Coordinadora Andaluza de ONGD (CAONGD), which assumes the coordination role of the project and its activities in the Andalusian territory.

GET project activities integrate six key elements to effectively incorporate GCE into formal education: 1) production and capitalisation of curriculum relevant teaching and learning materials, 2) training and support for teachers, 3) social media communication campaign to disseminate teaching and learning materials, 4) active involvement of students in learning process and as active citizens in their communities, 5) advocacy targeting Education authorities based on research evidence; 6) GCE assessment and evaluation systems designed specifically for schools.

One of the main problems highlighted through research during a previous European project, Get Up and Goals!, is the lack of dialogue between Education authorities and other key actors with responsibility for the implementation of GCE and related strategies. For this reason, GET project Outcome 3 is focused on outputs and activities to contribute to a situation where “Education Authorities and CSOs in 8 countries have more knowledge and opportunities to collaborate on the integration of GCE in formal education”. Outcome 3 outputs and activities include:

Output 3.1: Educational authorities have been surveyed on the opportunities and challenges of implementing GCE National/Regional Strategies (and related strategies and policies) in their countries.
