Global Learning and Global Citizenship Seminar at the V&A Museum of Childhood

I am writing with details of a seminar on Global Learning and Global Citizenship to be held at The V&A Museum of Childhood on Monday 3rd March 2014.

– Global Learning and Global Citizenship: discussions on the roles of fundraising and campaigning in schools

– Intellectual Frameworks Seminar at the V&A Museum of Childhood
– 3 March 2014

– 5.30pm-7.45pm

This seminar has been convened as part of the AHRC ‘Child in the World’ collaborative programme between the Museum of Childhood and Queen Mary.

The seminar interrogates the way in which ‘Global Learning’ is shaped by campaigning and fundraising activities in schools, and how this impacts on children’s ‘Global Citizenship’. Discussions will focus on NGO approaches, teaching approaches and the progress of the DFID funded ‘Global Learning’ programme in schools.

Speakers include Dr Alex Standish from the Institute of Education, education practitioners from the Association of Citizenship Teaching and the Royal Geographical Society, and NGO practitioners from Comic Relief and Plan International UK.

Both campaigning and fundrais in activities linked to NGOs regularly appear within the extra-curricular context of the school community, in the form of special assemblies, form activities and whole-school initiatives.
