Start the Change update

There has been a lot going on with our Start the Change project over the last few months and there is still lots to do to ensure that projects like this make an impact in the education sector. Here's a round-up of our recent work.

Global Learning Programme Update

The DfID funded UK wide Global Learning Programme (GLP) came to an end on 31 July.  A new programme, the Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning (CCGL) programme is being launched in September. 

Funding for Global Learning: UK versus Europe

Earlier this year a report was published by CONCORD on Global Citizenship Education in Europe (GCE). It questioned why the level of investment by national governments remains limited, despite many people recognising GCE as being a powerful tool to resolve the current global challenges our world is facing.

Think Global’s Diversity Today Award

Think Global’s Start the Change programme is collaborating with NASUWT’s Arts and Minds to run a UK wide art competition. NASUWT has been running this art competition for over 10 years, with the aim of celebrating cultural diversity.

Global Educator of the Year 2018

Think Global is very excited to announce the launch of this year’s Global Educator of the Year Award. This award recognises educators who have gone above and beyond in raising awareness and deepening understanding of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and encouraging young people to take action.

Empowered Communities research

Last year the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) in partnership with Local Trust embarked on their ‘Empowered Communities in the 2020s: shaping the future of community development’ research project. Here we share the findings with our network.
