Changing the narrative around the SDGs – SOLIDAR Foundation event in the LLLWeek


From the 1st to the 4th of December 2020 the 10th edition of the LLLWeek took place, pulling off an outstanding programme around the theme Lifelong Learning for Sustainable Societies. The event entailed 13 events featuring policymakers, representatives from International Institutions and, of course, educational CSOs and practitioners.  

SOLIDAR Foundation participated actively for this first online edition as well, organising a Round Table and a workshop on changing the narrative around the SDGs through Global Citizenship Education (GCE). The event was organised in cooperation with DARE Network and Bridge 47, and it took place timely one week after the online training organised for SOLIDAR membership, wrapping a year of increasing attention to GCE by SOLIDAR members.   

The event (recorded live), moderated by our Secretary-General Mikael Leyi, was also the opportunity to present SOLIDAR Foundation policy paper on GCE, illustrated by Andrei Frank.  

The Round Table was opened by Brikena Xhomaqi, Director of the LLLP, who stressed the increasingly important role of informal and non-formal education providers to promote GCE and the relevance of the latter to achieve sustainable societies. She underlined that more attention, including in terms of investments, should be given for advancing accessible education for sustainable development and the LLLP will soon release a position paper that highlights exactly this. The LLLP Director’s intervention was followed by the inputs from three CSOs representatives, providing the policy makers present at the Round Table with insights from practitioners on the ground.
