The North South Centre


The North-South Centre promotes Policies, Partnerships and Network as well as capacity-building in the field of GE:
  • It works on the development of a European framework for Global Education, and on the recognition of GE by policy-makers (Global Education Congresses and Strategic Recommendations);
  • It provides space for dialogue, in order for experiences to be shared and common priorities to be identified (National and Regional Seminars);
  • It strengthens a network of key stakeholders, at the Global and European levels, with a focus on the new EU Member States (GEW Network);
  • It promotes GE practices and encourage their implementation (Global Education Week).
The capacity-building pillar of the Programme consists in offering guidelines and training courses for educators (from the formal and non-formal sectors), for them to understand and practice Global Education. This learning scheme and networking of GE practices is developed through:

The Network University

The Network University (TNU) is a centre for collaborative learning. TNU is rooted in the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It offers innovative academic courses via the Internet to a worldwide audience of students and professionals. Participants with different professional backgrounds share their experiences in interactive group discussions and assignments. They become co-producers in joint knowledge networks.

TNU's activities are aimed at generating new knowledge and insights and then spreading these throughout the participating networks. These activities include the development and supervision of online courses, online debates, commissioned research, workshops combining online and face-to-face learning experiences and consultancy and strategy development on E-learning.
