Share your digital story about Global Citizenship Education!

Are you interested in Global Citizenship Education? Doesn’t matter, if you are a primary school teacher or an expert on gender equality, if you volunteer as a youth worker or you operate in the field of social inclusion and cultural diversity – we want to hear your voice!

Telecentre Europe, in collaboration with the partners of the Erasmus+ KA3 project “BRIGHTS – Boosting Global Citizenship Education using digital storytelling”, is promoting an open call for contribution to collect opinions, open educational resources, reports and any other material that can be exploited for the design and implementation of a MOOC for European teachers and trainers.

The call will stay open for the duration of the project, but if you really want to influence our research on training needs, you should share your contents and point of view before May 5, 2017.

Many relevant stakeholders are currently contributing from the different EU countries, represented in the partnership.
