The North-South Centre of the Council of Europe

The European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity, or “North-South Centre of the Council of Europe” (NSC), was created in 1989 with the purpose of spreading the universal values upheld by the Council of Europe – human rights, democracy and the rule of law – in Europe and beyond. Since its inception, the NorthSouth Centre has been advocating a dialogue between the North and the South, fostering solidarity, creating partnerships, and raising awareness about global interdependence.

The specific mission of the Centre is to empower civil society, in particular youth and women, through intercultural dialogue and global citizenship education.
The work of the North-South Centre develops around three Programmes: Youth Cooperation, Global Education, Empowerment of Women, having all of them “Migration” as cross cutting dimension.
The Youth Cooperation Programme of the North-South Centre promotes youth participation through training and capacity building courses aimed at facilitating young people and youth organizations’ involvement in decision and policy making processes at all levels of governance.

The Global Education Training Course for Youth Multipliers

The concept of Global Development Education (GDE) is promoted by the North-South Centre with an interdisciplinary approach where human rights, intercultural dialogue and democratic citizenship represent the main elements. GDE is also intended as a dynamic concept following the political, economic and social developments of the global society and responding to the needs of different stakeholders, both from civil society and institutions.
The training course on GDE is focused on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), seen as the international community’s responses to global challenges and trends in relation to sustainable development.
In this context, the training course will analyze the 5Ps of the SDGs: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership, by addressing a range of cross-cutting elements such as: youth participation, media literacy, human rights, migration, investment and trade and climate change.
The training course will give space to the participants to reflect upon political, economic, social and environmental issues developing in this way a critical understanding of their role, responsibility and lifestyles of in relation to a globalised and interconnected society.
Being grounded in this approach, the training course aims at providing youth multipliers and youth organisations with new tools and knowledge to play a greater change-making role in their communities within the current global interconnected context.

The specific objectives of the course are:

  • to understand the skills, values and knowledge behind the concept of GDE;
  • to provide youth multipliers with a series of competences and tools to promote and disseminate principles of GDE to other young people.
  • to raise awareness about the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UN Agenda 2030) and the role that young people and youth organisations have in implementing, monitoring and evaluating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) in their local communities following a “glocal” approach;
  • to offer a platform for youth peer-education and for the development of multilateral youth activities that promote peaceful and inclusive societies.

The conceptual and methodological framework of the course is based on the Global Education Guidelines systematized by the North- South Centre. The non-formal education methodology will be used to develop collaborative and interactive dynamics which will allow all participants to contribute to the process.
Case studies and thematic group discussion will stimulate in-depth participatory reflections, meanwhile experiential learning activities and workshops will strengthen the practical side of the course. The peer learning approach will also help in creating a common understanding of Global Development Education (GDE) among participants, contextualizing GDE in different target areas and groups, building upon participants’ experiences and knowledge and connecting different dimensions.
The Global Education Training Course for Youth Multipliers is part of the iLegend project: Intercultural Learning Exchange through Global Education, Networking and Dialogue implemented by the North- South Centre and funded by the European Union. The overall objective of the project is to strengthen GDE in EU member States and potential EU member States, particularly where it is least established, by promoting dialogue, networking strategies, capacity building and
exchange of good education practices in the field.
