What we do
In cooperation with Wosdec Global Learning Centre we piloted and introduced Global Storylines in the Czech Republic. In this approach, learners become characters in a community that is facing a particular global issue. At the moment, Global Storylines are being used in more than 15 primary schools in the Czech Republic.

Courses and seminars for teachers
For more than 5 years, we have been teaching long-term courses on critical thinking and global education. While exploring complex global issues, we combine the Reading and Writing to Critical Thinking methodology and the approach of Stephen Brookfield. We also offer tailored courses for specific groups (schools, universities, NGOs) and teach two global education courses at the Masaryk University in Brno, one at the Faculty of Education, second at the Faculty of Arts.
Scouts and Guides: Active Global Citizens
This international project aims to increase the role Scouts and Guides play in promoting human rights, equality and justice in the world. It encourages Scouts and Guides to recognise we live in an interconnected world where local actions have global impacts. For more information, go to www.nazemi.cz/cs/scoutsandguides.
Educational materials and resources
During the past 10 years, we published more than 15 publications containing various educational resources (activities, games, programmes) that can be used in formal and non-formal education context. Thanks to international cooperation, you can find some of those in English and we are happy to share them. To find a complete list of materials available in English, click here.
Facilitating learning and change in group processes
We are interested in techniques that help to cultivate discussions and enable groups to reach decisions close to consensus. We offer trainings and facilitation of group processes for various groups, such as schools, NGOs or other public institutions. We are interested in cooperation with groups that want to explore the ways of changing their inner structures, communication and decision making patterns or finding their goals or visions. Together, we can explore the possibilities of change.
Would you like to cooperate with us? We are interested in:
supporting schools to be actively engaged in global education and in implementing innovative and participatory methods
empowering schools to be the actors of change not only internally (as part of the curriculum) but also towards their local community
cooperation with teacher training institutions (e.g. pedagogical faculties) on incorporation of global education into the training of future teachers
working with scouts organizations and networks
implementing experiential learning in global education
