    The assumption of the NSC is that the activities of the JMA become all the more relevant in the context of the inter-national economic crisis, which hits particularly the EU.
    However, the programme does rely on the following pre-conditions:

    - Continued focus on education, youth and civil society empowerment as priorities of the work of the NSC in the new strategy 2013-2014

    - Engagement of non-state actors and LRAs

    - Continued interest and will of partners and stakeholders to co-operate

    - Continued political commitment of member states

    - Adequate level of funding and of staffing is assured
     
    Expected Result 1.1 The strategic recommendations adopted at the European Congress on Global Education in September 2012, building on the Council of Europe Recommendation on education for global interdependence and solidarity, are disseminated and progressively by stakeholders.
    An implementation plan of the CoE Recommendation on education for global inter-dependence and solidarity and a monitoring mechanism are in put in place.

    Organisation of at least one sub-regional seminar per year in 2013 and 2014 and one European Conference in 2015, to assess the progress and facilitate the integration of the strategic recommendations of the 2012 Congress on Global Education into national action plans or equivalent.
