This is a past event. See our upcoming events

Develop a deeper understanding of critical perspectives of Global Citizenship Education and how to harness this in the current climate.

About this Event

This two day workshop from IDEAS (International Development Education Association Scotland) and Bridge 47 will enhance your understanding of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) and the critical perspectives around this field of study. Through interactive sessions this workshop will reflect on the current context, including the climate emergency and the run up to COP26, as a way of ensuring a balance between theoretical discussions and practical applications.

You will be guided through both days by Dr Karen Pashby, from Manchester Metropolitan University. Karen has extensive research and teaching experience in Global Education and Global Citizenship Education, with a focus on critical discourse. Her research is informed by post/ de-colonial theories, and she aims to create a dynamic classroom space where learners can challenge their assumptions and tackle complexities. Karen will share her knowledge and expertise with you to spark your own reflections on critical Global Citizenship Education and how to incorporate discussions and translate these ideas into your work.

Anyone with an interest or working knowledge of the Sustainable Development Goals, GCE or critical approaches in education is welcome – from established organisations to independent practitioners.

The workshop will take place from 24th – 25th February at the Quaker Meeting House in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town.


Monday 24th February: 9.15 am – 5.00 pm

Tuesday 25th February: 9.15 am – 3.30 pm
