In a globalised world where challenges must be addressed locally and globally at the same time, the discourse of education has changed.
Global Citizenship Education (GCED) provides learners with the knowledge, competence, values, and attitudes which enable them to take an active role in addressing global challenges and working proactively towards a more just world. UNESCO aims to raise awareness about human rights and violations thereof, education for sustainable development, and the promotion of health through education.
Education is becoming increasingly relevant for understanding complex social, political, cultural, and global issues and for resolving the conflicts of the 21st century. Against this background, the concept of "Global Citizenship Education (GCED)" is becoming increasingly important.
