InterCap – Developing Capacities together: European CSO-University networks for global learning on migration, security and sustainable development in an interdependent world

InterCap envisages to establish European CSOs-University networks, build the capacities of the education actors and promote global learning on migration, security and sustainable development in an interdependent world.

Project Number: CSO-LA/2017/388-136

Funded by: EuropeAid        Duration: 11/2017-10/2020  


Challenge

Terrorism and extremist ideology are considered as a main challenge for security at global scale by a large number of EU citizens. This perception negatively influences the promotion of collaboration among EU and developing countries, creating thus an obstacle for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Innovation

By enhancing teachers’ understanding of migration in the context of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), InterCap changes the educational methods aiming at achieving social inclusion of migrants and refugee students and eradicating the stereotypes about migration and insecurity.

Action

InterCap includes the establishment of CSO and University networks in order to promote global learning on migration and sustainable development goals.

These networks include:
·         Community of Practice where relevant stakeholders share ideas and experiences about sustainable development with a focus to migration.
·         Mentor partnerships where collaborated teachers training institutions support the development and integration of the Training Curriculum in the normal activities of the institutions and the provision of teacher’s training.
·         National networks for the promotion of Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) which promote the cooperation between various actors on Sustainable Development issues, with a focus on migration.

The InterCap Training Package consists of 6 modules and aims at building the capacity of trainers and teachers in topics related to migration and sustainable development drawing on contemporary participatory methods and Global Learning. The Training Package is designed and offered for both online and face-to-face delivery.

The 6 modules are:
·         Migration, Security and Sustainable Development in an interdependent world: Theory and Practice
·         Development Education and Teachers’ Training: National Context
·         Communities for Philosophical Enquiry
·         Interactive learning communities (ILC): Engaging in critical thinking, reflection, inquiry and dialogue for global learning through ILC
·         Participatory Theatre Methods for Global Learning with reference to Theatre for Living: Unit I – Unit IV
·         Train the Trainer Pedagogies

The Curriculum is available here: https://www.developtogether.eu/en/training-package
International and national trainers’ trainings aim at enhancing the knowledge of teachers regarding migration and sustainable development issues.
Four pre-service teachers per partner organisation are placed in CSOs and engaged in their normal activities in the field, including action-based research, training activities, projects’ support, strategy building and management.
These projects aim to raise awareness on SDGs and the interconnections of migration, development and security (e.g. photo exhibitions, film festivals, local fairs, theatrical plays, sports and environmental interventions).
