A brazilian view on Global Citizenship Education

This article is an improved and expanded version of a presentation made at the Journée Educasol “L’Education à la Citoyenneté et à la Solidarité Internationale: Une nécessité sociale” – January 29th 2015, in Paris. It starts by presenting the global citizenship’s features that in our view are more aligned with Brazilian society’s present needs; then it shows some examples of how Brazil builds local and global citizenship through formal and non-formal education processes. It shares some practices in Global Citizenship Education developed by Brazilian Ngo CECIP and concludes with reflections on the challenges to be faced in order to disseminate Global Citizenship Education in Brazil.
