14. Why is the project taking place?GCE must break out from the circle of educators, involve new stakeholders and be fully recognized as an essential tool also among policy makers. For this to happen, the capacity of civil society needs to be developed to find new partners and innovative ways of working. GCE actors also need a space to maintain the partnerships, exchange information and best practices and coordinate advocacy efforts
15. Overall objective of the projectGlobal civil society is mobilised to contribute effectively to global justice and eradication of poverty through global citizenship
16. Specific objective(s) of the project1. Bridge 47 network: A vibrant global coalition in support of global citizenship is set up with the increased capacity of European global citizenship education CSOs to network with global partners; 2. Advocacy at national, EU and global level: The essential role of GCE in delivering the SDGs is reflected in national, European and UN policies and implementation plans; 3. Development of partnerships: Global citizenship education is understood and practiced in partnerships between CSOs and researchers, policy makers, private sector, and military/police sectors; 4. Capacity development and innovation: Opportunities for European CSOs to develop and use new and innovative approaches for global citizenship education are significantly increased
17. What will have changed as a result of the project? (Summarise the intended outcome)The Bridge 47 Network has connected people around the world to work together and learn from each other in making target 4.7. reality. We have advocated for better policies that reflect the role of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in making sustainable development possible. We have made GCE visible in policy documents on national, European and global level. We have explored new ways of working in partnership with organisations that haven’t previously engaged with GCE. And we have explored new ways of doing GCE and increased the capacity of European civil society to be innovative.
