Global Citizenship Third Annual Conference

Education of Hope: the impact of ESD/GC on the well being of teachers and young people

"to be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing" Raymond Williams quoted by George Monbiot

Conference Themes

ESD/GC does it provide hope or despair, do we have to go

through despair to get to hope?

What do we mean by well being? What impact does ESD/GC have on the well being of beginner teachers and on young people, how can we evidence that impact?

How can we develop a curriculum content and pedagogy that helps new teachers acquire the attributes they need to be able to enable young people to 'make a difference'?

How can we mainstream this practice?

Speakers include David Hicks, internationally recognized for his work on global and futures perspectives and author of 'Teaching the Global Dimension' and Lessons for the Future'
