The Global Learning Centre aims to promote understanding of people’s shared responsibilities for developing more peaceful, just and ecologically sustainable communities in our world.
Global Education promotes long-term solutions to social and environmental problems. Solutions that reduce poverty, connect social and environmental issues locally and globally, affirm and celebrate cultural diversity, and involve everyone.
Global Education – Education for justice, peace and sustainability
Globalisation brings social, economic, environmental and cultural challenges for organisations in both the public and private sectors. These organisations need an understanding of how to embrace globalisation while creating a more just and equitable world.
Established in 1986, the Global Learning Centre is a not-for-profit, community-based organisation which is focused on:
understanding interdependence and globalisation;
appreciating identity and cultural diversity and building cultural competence;
fostering peace and conflict resolution;
understanding social justice and respecting human rights;
and building sustainable futures.
The Global Learning Centre recognises that educating for effective global citizenship brings unique challenges for schools and universities. Passionate Practitioners – a documentary series celebrating excellence in Global Citizenship Education illustrates the potential of global education to not only address these challenges but to transform school communities. Watch the individual stories of the teachers featured on the film.
