Featured Project - This is Education for Development


These days, we are launching "This is EfD", "This is Education for Development", an online resource which is an initiative from the Quepo Foundation. The tool is based on a powerful audiovisual material.

In addition to the continuous updating of the website, they are planning to translate it and offer it also in Spanish. It’s designed for teachers, instructors, volunteers, organizations in the field of education and cooperation, leisure, and resources for general public awareness...

They have chosen 10 issues as the topics on the web, and the first step will be to publish daily a central post from a specialist until June 28. Now the site already offers audio-visual material online about each of these topics.

The topics are:

• Right to life: non-violence, culture of peace, disarmament
• We reserve the right of admission: immigration, asylum, mobility, refugees
• Health• Education for All
• Freedom of expression
• Eat or be eaten: fair trade, consumer society
• Healthy Environment: Ecology, sustainability, climate change, environmental policy
• Food power
• Governance: Citizen Participation, third sector, participatory democracy
• Economy
