A strong campaign from DEEEP and CONCORD achieves a result in the area development education

The European Parliament calls on Member States and the European Commission to strengthen development education across Europe. After an intense four months campaign, the European Parliament adopts the written declaration on development education and global active citizenship.

On July 5th, the European Parliament has officially adopted the written declaration on development education and active global citizenship, co-tabled by MEP Filip Kaczmarek, Catherine Grèze , Fiona Hall, Maria Badia I Cutchet and Michael Gahler.

The declaration, which promotes the strengthening of development education policies, both at national and European level represents a paramount political milestone for the development education sector.

The very positive response of the European Parliament follows a strong campaign lead by CONCORD and DEEEP, and sets the frame for new political debates on the role of European citizens within development.
