On the occasion of the International Peace Day (21 September), FWC facilitated a workshop on Global Education for teacher of the Agiou Ioanni Lyceum in Limassol. The headmaster, Mr. Demetriades, and eight teachers participated in the interactive workshop, which focused on the concept of Global Education and how it can be integrated into the various lessons. The teachers actively discussed the role, which global skills, values, attitudes and knowledge can and should play at school, and came up with their own proposals on how to include a global approach in their lessons. The lyceum is participating in the Europe-Aid funded Global Connections Project (ONG-ED/2007/136-419), coordinated by FWC, and is pioneering in in bringing a global perspective into the school. Teachers are planning further happenings and events in the context of the Global Education Week in November this year.
