Future Worlds Center supports the Global Education Week
Future Worlds Center supports the Global Education Week between 14 and 22 November 2009, being celebrated across the 47 member states of the Council of Europe.
The Global Education Week encourages pupils and teachers as well as youth groups to explore educational activities for global citizenship. This year's theme is closely related to the Millennium Development Goals: "FOOD FOR ALL". Schools, teachers, students and all other active youth are invited to participate in the campaign with their activities and raise awareness about global issues and how they interrelate with our life.
Future Worlds Center, through its Global Education Unit, strongly supports the Global Education Week, and will visit different schools and offer workshops to teachers to support their engagement in Global Education. Future Worlds Center will also be present at the bi-communal fair of the International Children's Film Festival on Saturday, providing information and interactive exercises to youth about the Millennium Development Goals.
