In 2002, the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, Global Education Network Europe and partners agreed in Maastricht on a strategy for the promotion and support of Global Education in Europe until 2015. The Maastricht Declaration established the first framework for improving, through education, public awareness and understanding of global challenges and how to meet them. Ten years after, the same stakeholders and new actors in the field meet again to assess achievements made since the Maastrich Declaration and define a plan of action for remaining objectives until 2015.
The 2nd European Congress on Global Education will take place on 27-28 September 2012 in Lisbon and will bring together the main stakeholders from all over Europe and the neighbouring regions. The Congress enjoys the financial support of the European Commission and will be co-organised by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, the Global Education Network Europe (GENE) and the European NGO Confederation for Relief and Development (CONCORD). Local partners are IPAD – Camões – Institute for Co-operation and Language, the University of Lisbon and the Portuguese NDGO Platform.
