We’ve been really busy working with our partners to advocate for global learning in the UK. Here’s a summary of our recent activities.
- Our submission to the Labour Party International Development Task Force focused on the need for ambition and imagination in order to implement Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4.7 (‘education for sustainable development and global citizenship’) in the UK; the 1-pager can be read here.
- We will be joining a small group of representatives from the global learning sector to meet with members of the International Development Select Committee at Westminster on 6 February. The meeting is to brief members of the Committee on the work we and our partners are doing in schools across the UK to educate young people about global issues through the DFID-funded Global Learning Programme (GLP). We will also raise the need for scrutiny of DFID’s decision-making process regarding the future of government funded global learning.
- We have a meeting scheduled at the end of January with Amelia Walker, Deputy Director, Research and Evaluations at Ofsted to discuss recognising the importance of global learning in inspections.
- We’re pleased to be working with The UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD) on driving action for the SDGs in the UK. The network is keen to welcome new partners, so please check out the UKSSD website and get stuck in!
