“HI-GLOBE – Highlighting the Potential of English Language Learning for Global Education Purposes”
Strategic Partnerships for adult education
In 2019 we have to admit, that we are living in turbulent times. Poverty, inequality, social-political conflicts and climate change are among the most important challenges that we are facing nowadays as members of the European society and as global citizens. In the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and 169 targets have been identified to be reached by the end of 2030, and it calls for all public, for-profit and non-profit, private and civil organisations to unite and contribute with its resources for the successful management of these global challenges.
In the process of looking for solutions for the challenges identified as SDGs, the partnership found that there is a huge potential in language learning to support the education for sustainable development.
Global Education (GE) has been defined as an approach that enables people to develop the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes needed for securing a just, sustainable world in which everyone has the right to fulfil his/her potential. GE encompasses Development Education, Human Rights Education, Education for Sustainability, Education for Peace and Conflict Prevention, Intercultural Education, being the global dimension for Education for Citizenship (Global Education Guidelines, 2008).
