Global Citizenship Education - A Political Right?

We are delighted to invite you to the Policy Roundtable "Global Citizenship Education: A Political Right?", organised jointly by SOLIDAR Foundation and the S&D Group in the European Parliament on 8 June from 10h to 12h. Interpretation will be available for EN, ES, FR, IT. 

The Roundtable forms part of the annual work of SOLIDAR Foundation on Global Citizenship Education (GCE) and, notably, its conceptualisation as a Political Right. The results of this discussion will steer the collection of the data upon which SOLIDAR Foundation will draft the main messages and policy recommendations to support GCE provision, along with a Policy Manifesto on GCE as a Political Right. The latter will also be the basis for a campaign run by our membership ahead of the European Elections. 

Don’t miss it and register via this form. Please note that registrations close on 31/5 for those who like to participate in person and don't have a badge to the EP, and on 6/6 if you are planning to participate online.
