Since the very beginning of our organisation, we have collaborated with teachers and other educational workers in various ways. In the last few years, our collaboration with the educational sector grew even stronger. Together, we recognized the need and the opportunity to form an informal space, where educational workers, who are interested in global learning, could regularly meet and share their experiences. We came up with an idea of a very special club – Global Education Teachers Club! The club was established in January 2018 and to this day we have more than 80 members from different parts of Slovenia.
The meaning of our Club was also recognized by the Global Education Network Europe – GENE, where they gave us an award for one of the most innovative practices of global learning in Europe for the year 2018 (GENE Global Education Innovation Award). The GENE award has great meaning for Humanitas and global education recognition in Slovenia. Or as they wrote at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia (a member of the GENE network): “This award represents recognition to Slovenian non-profit organisations for quality work and cooperation at the European level.” You can watch a short video of Global Education Teachers’ Club below.
