A student-teacher workshop "Stepping out of the pond - Global Citizenship Education for the Baltic Sea countries" in Hildesheim in Germany, 9.-10.05.2019

We would like to invite you to our first international student-teacher workshop on the topic of Global Citizenship Education (GCED). In the last couple of decades, we have continued to work together at our schools, in our national networks and at international events, the common focus being the Baltic Sea. In the last decade UNESCO has put an emphasis on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and more recently on Global Citizenship Education. As a UNESCO network we see it as our task to discuss how we can take a step ’out of the pond’ and find a practical application for GCED in our work in the UNESCO Baltic Sea Project network.

In order to take this step, we have decided to host a two-day workshop in which we will focus on the following topics:
- What is Global Citizenship Education?
- The ’ideal’ global citizen/student/teacher
- GCED in our schools and communities, in our curriculum and best practice methods in a school setting
- Cooperation between schools and nations, international camps and best practice for workshops and projects

 

We will provide you with some input for each of the topics, but the focus will be on our work in smaller international groups with teachers and students working together on the afore mentioned topics in order to come up with practicable solutions for integrating Global Citizenship Education into our UNESCO Baltic Sea Project work.

 

We will be hosting the workshop at the Robert-Bosch-Gesamtschule in Hildesheim, Germany. The workshop will start on May 9th at 9:00 am and will end on May 10th at 1:30 pm with the option of staying longer for lunch and a tour of our school.

 

Invited are all students and teachers in our UNESCO Baltic Sea Network together with special guests from educational institutions and other schools in the region. We especially hope to see a good mix of national coordinators, school administrators and students attending the workshop.

 

You will be staying overnight at either a hostel or a hotel close to the school (see attached registration form). We have taken care to reserve quite a few rooms in advance.

 

If you are coming by car or train, you can find the addresses of the school, hotel and hostel below. Everything is within 2-3 km of the train station. If you are coming by plane, you should book your flight to Hannover. We will arrange to pick you up from the airport.

 

You will need to cover the costs of your transportation, your accommodation (includes breakfast) and dinner. The cost of the workshop, snacks and coffee and lunch is free of charge for all participants.

 

If you would like to participate, fill in the attached registration form by March 15th, 2019, and send it via email to nicolai.krichevsky@rbg-hi.de.
