Global citizenship is based on the concept of interdependence between the local and the universal and it assumes a sustainable, empathetic, and supportive behaviour. GCE is an education future oriented, with at the center human rights, common goods and sustainability. It is the set of actions aimed at strengthening the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
It promotes understanding among all peoples and nations and the capability to be informed and participate in the decision-making processes at local, regional, and global levels. GCE considers education as a transformative action, based on the use of innovative teaching methods based on dialogue and reflection, with the learner at the centre.
It refers to a civic awareness on a global scale which, together with the development of critical thinking and listening, and dialogue skills, calls for an active role both as individuals and collectively in compliance with the principles of environmental and social justice. GCE implies educational processes at all levels, informal, non-formal and formal, as well as in all social contexts (family, school, workplace, community in general).
