The increased discussion around global citizenship education (GCE) has helped to build a framework of best practice for its implementation and delivery within formal educative settings. At the same time, research has shown that the constraints and obstacles formal education currently faces makes it increasingly difficult to deliver GCE. Yet, there remains little in-depth research into the spaces beyond the walls of formal education or outside of structured learning as a place for GCE. Thus, this Webinar will explore data collected from research conducted within an global civil society organisation Children’s International Summer Villages (CISV) who aims to build ‘active global citizens’. Fieldwork, here, focused on capturing the lived-experience of global citizenship through this international learning process for both youth and adult by following the process through the camp. Using analysis of semi-structured interviews and ethnographic observations it will be argue that global citizen learning and practice cannot be solely understood through structured learning but within informal spaces and interactions that occur through ones personal learning journey.
The UEA UNESCO Chair Webinar Series showcases ongoing PhD research exploring issues around Adult Literacy and Learning (ALL) for Social Change.
