Watch: Students from nine countries work together on Global Citizenship
A short film about students from nine countries working together celebrates the 200th Anniversary of compulsory education in Denmark, and gives inspiration for Education on Global Citizenship.
In 2014, Denmark has been celebrating the 200th Anniversary of compulsory education for all, and the Danish schools under the Associated School Project (ASP) have contributed to the festivities. In line with the overall strategy for ASP-net, the Danish network has invited schools and students from eight other countries to work together to create ideas on how to develop a school that develops global citizens.
After six months of online preparation and communication, pupils and teachers from Cuba, Estonia, Japan, Jordan, Libanon, Oman, Tanzania and the U.S. Virgin Islands came to Denmark in October 2014 to work together for a whole week and produce good examples and recommendations on how to teach and learn for global citizenship. The final outcome and recommendations from the teachers were presented to the Danish Minister for Education, Ms. Christine Antorini, and H.R.H. Princess Marie at the end of the seminar.
