Bridge 47 was created to bring people together to share and learn from each other. They mobilise civil society all around the world to do their part for global justice and eradication of poverty with the help of Global Citizenship Education.
Global Citizenship Education inspires people to do more for each other and our planet. They believe everyone can change the world. With the help of Global Citizenship Education, they can learn to do things better, to live by values that make a difference. Global Citizenship Education encourages us to reflect upon their assumptions, make informed decisions and demand policies that create a more fair and equal world.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development created new opportunities – and also new challenges – for all of us. For the first time in the global context, target 4.7. of Agenda 2030 recognized how important it is for learners of all ages to have the knowledge and skills needed to act for sustainable development. Bridge 47 was created to coordinate their efforts in responding to this challenge.
