The course is focused on developing and improving competences related to how to use storytelling in the specific context of global education. The course is aimed at people working in the field of global education (trainers, activists, advocates, communications).


The methodology will consist of non formal learning based approaches, practical workshops, sharing stories,
global education activities and experiential learning (with an outdoors component). Reflective practice will also be a crucial feature of the project.

The course is designed for participants with at least a basic understanding of global education. Also, the
participants must be motivated and willing to learn, share, explore and discover their skills in order to use their experience later in their jobs and/or communities.

  • Examine the importance and role of values and frames in our storytelling and public communications.
  • Allow a space for participants to apply the principles of storytelling to their own practice.
