A few words about Politeia
POLITEIA is an Erasmus+ project that aims to address the gap in the provision of global citizenship education in secondary schools, and to support teachers to promote and integrate global citizenship in their teaching, in the U.K., Greece, Portugal, Slovenia and Cyprus. The project has built an innovative, tailored training course addressed to teachers to allow them to confidently bring global citizenship issues in the classroom, integrate its themes and values in the citizenship course or across curricula and ignite students’ interest in global citizenship.
