On 8th and 9th September 2017, Senigallia's seminar on intercultural education will tackle sustainability. With presentations and workshops, teachers and educators will explore the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development
The 11th edition of the Seminar on Intercultural Education organised by CVM is titled ”Sustainability and Human Development. New curriculum for the global citizen of the 21st century" and moves from the UN 2030 Sustainable development agenda, the UNESCO pedagogical guide on "Global citizenship education", and on the document "Skills for a culture of democracy" by Council of Europe.
The Seminar, organised within the Global Schools project, will take place in Senigallia on 8-9 September 2017 where internationally renowned experts will discuss about ethics and sustainability policy, as well as of the prospects for an “integral ecology” that requires a critical mind starting from the school benches. The Direction General for Education of Portugal will present the country's Global Citizenship Education (GCE) policy, which is at the forefront in education in Europe. Participating teachers can choose among eighteen workshops, where the Agenda 2030 will be translated into interactive didactic activities to be replicated in the classrooms. The aim is to encourage students to learn the life skills that are indispensable to handle issues, situations and questions posed by the challenges of the III Millennium.
The aim that each teacher should pursue is to "go beyond" the present, and provide students with the tools they need to imagine a future based on a new citizenship, based on an advanced social contract.
It is necessary to review the mental paradigms with which we approach disciplinary knowledge to foster a new culture of relationships, marked by the values of co-responsibility, interdependence, decentralisation, critical thinking, creativity and the capacity to scale up.
Building the competences of a cosmopolitan citizen should be the new mission of the school and affect the teacher's ethics as indicated in the UNESCO's pedagogical guide .
