The team of “Educar Para Vivir”, with Javier Collado as coordinator, proposes in this video the idea that Global Citizenship Education supports cross-cultural and innovative methodologies to achieve meaningful learning, and a phenomenological awareness of citizenship to achieve progress in humanity ́s evolution. We assent to the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations for 2015 and 2025.
Through Educar Para Vivir we approach the teaching-learning process from the adjacent dialectic of multidisciplinary issues that Global Citizenship Education enable us to build. We appreciate diffusion of knowledge in an effort to avoid cognitive conflicts between different educational actors. Consequently, through Educar Para Vivir we can find and experience meaningful and pragmatic learning about various problems of the globalized world of the twenty-first century. Meaningful learning is motivated by existentialism and by the theoretical-epistemological fundamentals of socio-constructivism that a truly Global Citizenship Education enables. Approaching teaching and learning this way, we are making an effort to get a free, fair and equal society.
