Critical Global (Citizenship) Education

Workshop with Professor Vanessa Andreotti May 11th to May 13th 2018 in Aarhus, Denmark.

This training offers the rare opportunity of an intensive immersion into the theory and practice of one of the most inspiring voices on global education in the world.

Critical GCE Vanessa AndreottiVanessa Andreotti is an internationally renowned post-colonial scholar and activist. She holds a Canada Research Chair in Race, Inequalities and Global Change at the University of British Columbia.

She has extensive experience collaborating across sectors internationally in areas related to international development, global citizenship, indigenous knowledge, social responsibility and wellbeing. In her work on education and critical literacy she takes a radical stance, challenging the basic assumptions of knowledge production and learning, inviting neglected forms of wisdom and co-creation. Through her powerful use of metaphor she is analysing our world in a manner that is fresh and creative, with mindful consideration of both its monstrosity and its beauty. Her work enables us to think and feel beyond dominant paradigms and to act for a wiser future in this planet.

For an insight into some of Vanessa’s most current works that will also inform the workshop, visit the following website:


The workshop offers us a potpourri of Vanessa‘s explorations starting with a reflection and critical analysis of “conventional“ global (citizens) education, Vanessa will take us beyond that, sharing some of her own pedagogical experiments and experiences.  Challenging and expanding dominant ontologies (assumptions of what and how humans are to be in this world) and concepts of learning.

We generate ideas how to evolve global (citizenship) education in socially complex and politically uncertain times to a more transformative level. The workshop will consist of a mixture of intellectual and embodied exercises.
