GLOBE – Global Learning for Sense of Belonging

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project is aimed at educational leaders and teachers, who are in a key position in enhancing sustainable future skills through the notion of agency in their own institutions. The underlying idea behind GloBe is to advance human well-being and social inclusion within and beyond school environments by enriching one’s sense of belonging.

GloBe was targeted for teachers and principals working around the themes of Global Education and Learning (GEL), Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), pedagogical and shared leadership, co-teaching, whole-school approach and school eco-system thinking.

To reach the aim, the objectives of GloBe are to:

•deepen and broaden the scope of day-to-day work of school principals towards pedagogical and shared leadership

•enhance teachers’ shared and co-teaching professional capabilities to cross disciplinary and grade-level boundaries in schools, and introduce new to “sustainable future” learning modules to actively engage students

GloBe brought together 56 participants from the three countries. GloBe participants were built up from Cohorts 1 and 2.  Altogether there were 20 schools developing their activities in seven different cities: Oulu and Jyväskylä, in Finland; Lisbon, Braga and Viana do Castelo in Portugal; and Cluj-Napoca and Floresti, in Romania. The project activities reached and benefitted directly around 6200 students and 570 staff members within the schools. GloBe developed an online learning platform entitled “Handbook for Global Educationalists”. The Handbook highlights practitioners’ point of view and is developed for the use of teachers and school leaders, and other educational professionals.  Handbook for Global Educationalists – Practitioners’ Point of View – also translated into Romanian.
