Bridge 47 was created to bring people together to share and learn from each other. We mobilise civil society all around the world to do their part for global justice and eradication of poverty with the help of Global Citizenship Education.
Recently I experienced that a facilitator in a training on sustainability was asked: “what is the best thing to do now that we humans are facing an end to the kind of life we have known for years”? She paused for a long time, and then said that we should work on our relationship to the animals that we eat, to the nature that we destroy with our lifestyle and to each other.
We will have the kick-off event of Northern Europe Knowledge Exchange Partnerships events taking place in Scotland on 13–14 of January 2020. The title of the event is 'Education, inequality and critical global citizenship – local realities/global contexts'.
A Bridge 47 Knowledge Exchange Partnership Meeting in Stirling, January 2020
Grab a couple of handfuls of engaged citizens involved in global education. Sprinkle a little account of mapping of Danish GCE and SDG activities in. Add a spicy skilled sustainability consultant. Pour a lot of coffee and dash it with smiles, cookies and a touch of salty caramel. Then you get a meeting about target 4.7 and how to create social change.
MUNDU held a meeting about the SDG Target 4.7 and sustainable consumption in September and our intern Elena has written her reflections from the meeting.
If you are curious about what progress is being made and what initiatives are being implemented in relation to GCE in other countries, a newly published report zooms in on Denmark and gives you an overview of the efforts being made on target 4.7.
