On 8 March 2018, CONCORD launched its report on GCE “Global Citizenship Education in Europe: How much do we care?”. Why should we care about global citizenship education?

These questions were addressed in the report and discussed by the panellists, including experts from DEVCO and UNESCO.
While Global Citizenship Education is recognised by many as a powerful tool to resolve the current global challenges our world is facing, the level of investment by national governments remains limited.
