ED-Comunicar – do Conhecimento à Mobilização

“ED-Comunicar – do Conhecimento à Mobilização” (ED-Communicate – from Knowledge to Mobilization) is a project that arises from the need for a greater involvement of the Portuguese population around the issues of Development and Global Citizenship, promoting critical thinking and an active civic participation based on cooperation and solidarity.

The project aims to demonstrate to the rest of civil society and development actors the contributions and added value of the EDCG (Education for Development and Global Citizenship) in the process(s) of social transformation and awareness, with a view to a more democratic, participatory and fair society. For these reasons, 8 NGDOs collaboratively assume in this action a set of activities guided by the principles of action of the ENED (National Strategy for Development Education), namely coherence, cooperation, co-responsibility, equity, equality, social justice, non-discrimination, participation and solidarity.

WE PROPOSE

  • To increase the visibility, knowledge, and recognition of Development Education and Global Citizenship, at the national level, creating spaces for affirmation and appropriation by the other development actors;
  • To strengthen the knowledge and visibility of Development Education and Global Citizenship by promoting understanding, recognition and involvement of strategic actors and the community at large in the public discussion on the challenges to ensure a more equitable and sustainable world.

WHY
?

The Development Education and Global Citizenship (EDCG) sector is the result of the collaborative work of several entities, most of which are Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), with particular emphasis on Non-Governmental Development Organizations (NGDOs).

As a result of the need for greater involvement of the Portuguese population in issues related to Development and Global Citizenship, promoting critical thinking and active civic participation based on cooperation and solidarity, the project aims to demonstrate to the rest of civil society and Development actors the contributions and added value of the EDCG in the process(s) of social transformation, in a critical and conscious way, aiming at a more democratic, participative and fair society.

The action of Portuguese NGOs counts as another step in the implementation of measures that are a “prerequisite for achieving a more modern, fair and equitable society, and a truly sustainable development, in full respect of human dignity” (National Report on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, MNE, 2017). And it is, for all this, necessary to go further in the promotion of this critical, and conscious, global solidarity grounded in the promotion of the EDCG.
