Teaching climate change on math. Active subject-oriented approach in global citizenship education with Anna Wojtych (Center for Citizenship Education)

Global citizenship education, or global learning, is gradually finding its way into schools. To encourage teaching GCE, an innovative methodology of embedding global learning topics into subject lessons has been developed. This approach ensures systematic appearance of global topics in the classroom in line with the curricula. The workshop aims to give the participants an insight into the ready-to-use sets of lesson plans that embed global issues such as climate change, gender equality or migrations into subject curricula for pupils aged 10+. It will be held by experienced educators and teachers involved in creating and testing the methodology within the ‘Global Issues – Global Subjects’ project (www.bit.ly/GIGSpro).

We will also provide the floor for nationals of the UK who have supposedly ‘lost’ their EU citizenship with the UK’s exit from the EU at the end of January 2020. Finally, we will feature some of the personal stories of our upcoming booklet on Union citizenship – we hope to include your story as well!

Sustainability, Democracy and the Arts – Cultural and Artistic Responses to Environmental Change with the Goethe Institute, the Prince Claus Fund, the Federal Agency for Civic Education and the “Panel on Planetary Thinking” at the Justus Liebig University of Giessen

In two workshops within the context of the NECE Campus, initiatives from around the world will be presented as a starting point for a discussion on sustainability, democracy and the arts.
