On 16-18 October 2015 in Veliko Tarnovo, the Bulgarian Platform for International Development (BPID) organized the third workshop for teachers within the framework of the project “Introducing Global Education into Bulgarian Secondary Education”. The workshop was held with the financial support of the NGO Program in Bulgaria under the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area 2009-2014.
Teachers from different schools in the country discussed the formulation of “global education” in different areas such as human rights, economy and consumption, health and ecology. In four working groups, participants discussed also their vision for changes in the state educational standards related to global education.
BPID will continue the initiative to gather teachers’ and NGO’s proposals in this field and will summarize them in concrete recommendations to the relevant institutions.
