Global Education
for Youth workers

The GE4YOUTH project aims at creating individual and group-work training tools based on Global Education approaches, for a more efficient engagement between youth workers and marginalised youth.

The IDEA

About the Project

GE4YOUTH – EU Programme: Erasmus+ KA2: Cooperation partnerships in YOUTH
Reference: 2021-1-IT03-KA220-YOU-000028632

“Education and training policy should enable all citizens to benefit from quality education and to acquire and update over a lifetime the knowledge, skills, and competences needed for employment, inclusion, active citizenship and personal fulfilment. Young people from immigrant backgrounds, the disabled, and Roma children are among the most vulnerable groups affected”.

Global Education Map for Youth Workers

We conducted the research and the survey among youth workers in 5 countries: Italy, Spain, Ireland, Czech Republic and Poland. This allowed us to analyse the current practices and the attitudes of Youth Workers towards Global Educational methodologies in the youth education field.

Below you can find and downland the Comparative Maps and the Reports containing the international and national definitions of Global Education and the approaches of Youth Workers towards Global Education.
