Deryneia makes Global Connections

25 teachers from primary schools and a nursery school participated in a 2-day interactive training workshop on Global Development Education at the 3rd Elementary School in Deryneia on the 6th and 12th November. The training took place in the framework of the 'Accessing Development Education' project. Under the slogan 'Global Connections - Local Citizens Making Global Connections through Education', the project aims to engage educators and schools in Global Development Education activities and equip them with relevant training and materials, thus making them promoters and multipliers of national campaigns that aim to create awareness about Development and about global interdependencies.

The training in Deryneia was carried out by the team of facilitators, who had participated in the Training of Trainers in Edinburgh/ Scotland in June this year, implemented under the same project. The two days introduced teachers to the concept of the global citizen, to the skills, knowledge, understanding, values and attitudes associated with global citizenship and offered a variety or practical activities and exersices that can easily be incorporated into different lessons to include a global perspective in the classroom.
More similar trainings are planned for teachers in Agros and in Limassol. For more information, please contact the project coordinator.
