Global education

Global educationThe aim of global education is to demonstrate how the whole world is interconnected and how one small event at one end of the Earth can lead to a chain reaction in all other corners of our planet. We try to show all members of society how important it is to find connections between different states, regions and continents. Global education is about understanding the necessity of mutual cooperation at the global level and the influence each of us can have on this cooperation.

In global education, we focus mainly on globalization, human rights, discrimination, racism, gender equality and global issues such as poverty and famine, and last but not least, the environment.

We organize a number of lectures, panel discussions or educational seminars with experts. We work directly with children in schools, but also offer suburban summer camps for schoolchildren.

Simultaneously, it provides them with a platform for communicating ideas on how to solve global problems. As a motivation to come up with a solution, we also organized a competition.
