Show Synopsis    
Title Regional Seminar on Global/Development Education in the Baltic States  
Description The first regional seminar of the Global Education Programme took place in Riga (Latvia) on 29-30 April. The seminar, entitled “Do It: Baltic Regional Seminar on Global/Development Education”, was organised by the NSC in partnership with the Latvian NDGO Platform (LAPAS), and in collaboration with the Estonian Roundtable for Development Co-operation (AKÜ), the Lithuanian Youth Centre (LYC), LITDEA - Lithuanian Network for Development Education and the Lithuanian National NGDO Platform. The aim of the meeting was to bring together key stakeholders in the field and assess the state of Global/Development Education in the Baltic countries, Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, and raise public awareness on the basis of the EU strategy “European Consensus on Development Education” as well as the Council of Europe’s current process towards adopting a recommendation on Global Education. Around 80 representatives from ministries, governmental agencies, NGOs dealing with GE/DE, national local authorities and foreign experts gathered to work on preparing a comparison of best practise in the Baltic States to firmly establish GE/DE on the Education agenda
