What is Global Citizenship Education?
Global Citizenship Education is an active and creative educational process to increase awareness and understanding of the world in which we live. Learners are supported, in age‐appropriate ways, to make connections between their own lives and international social justice issues, to collaborate, cooperate and be empowered to make a positive difference in the world.


Global Village
The webinars will be hosted by Global Village, the strategic partnership for Global Citizenship Education in Primary Schools, between Irish Aid at the Department of Foreign Affairs, and a consortium of four partners: Dublin City University (DCU), the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO), the Irish Primary Principals’ Network (IPPN) and Trócaire.
