Glocal Tour is a 3-year international project funded by the European Commission and implemented by the Peace Action, Training and Research Institute of Romania (PATRIR), Salezjanski Wolontariat Misyjny-Młodzi Swiatu (SWM Youth for the World) – Poland, Verein Niedersächsischer Bilungsinitiativen e.V.(VNB) – Germany, and… Volontariato Internazionale per lo Sviluppo (VIS) – Italy.
The development issues addressed are Millenium Development Goals related issues, such as: poverty, primary education accessibility, child and maternal health, combating disease, gender equality, and sustainable development. Therefore, the MDG agenda is viewed as a common challenge, especially in the context of children and youth and from the point of view of global influence to their lives and development.
The main project objective is to reinforce the use of peer education as a tool for raising the awareness of European students and create a common approach to Development Education among the teachers. This will be achieved by bringing local ideas to global level and, in consequence, encouraging the interactions between the targeted youth and educators.
