Global Education Ideas Award.

Does your organisation work with Global Education?
Do you have a brilliant new idea for a Global Education initiative?
The GENE Global Education Ideas Award is now open for applications! 


ANGEL project partner GENE – Global Education Network Europe – aim to highlight the importance of innovation in Global Education through its Global Education Ideas Award. The Award is focused on new ideas for Global Education initiatives that facilitate transformative learning and opens peoples’ eyes and minds to the realities of the world, locally and globally. It promotes Global Education that brings about this change through creativity, participation, direct action, synergies and innovation, and to inspire public policy.

There are many challenging questions that Global Education practitioners and policy makers face in their realities: “How do we engage people who are not easy to reach?”, “How can innovative Global Education transform attitudes of those whose values differ from those associated with Global Education, such as solidarity, social justice, non-violence?”, “How do we engage in ‘political literacy’, empowering people to act in order to change national and international policies?”, “How do we strengthen Global Education practices not only at the level of the individual but also at the collective and ultimately societal levels?”

With the Global Education Ideas Award, GENE wishes to encourage experimentation, the exploration of new approaches and ways to address the different issues that are pressing the local and global realities, in both formal and nonformal educational settings.

GENE WILL AWARD PROMISING IDEAS WITH AMOUNTS UP TO 10 000 EURO.
