1 Czech Development Education Strategy The Story so far… in the Czech Republic

2 A bit of history… MFA: - continuous support of stand-alone Development Education projects since 2003 (implemented by NGOs – focused on DE + awareness) - 2004 UNDP project „Implementation of Developmemt Education into the Czech Educational System “(People in Need NGO) - 2005 cooperation with the North South Center (small scale grants for NGOs) - 2005 cooperation with the GENE - 2008 GENE Peer Review on Development Education in the Czech Republic MEdu: - since 2003 cooperation with the MFA in the field of DE (mostly through appraisal and evaluation of DE projects implemented by NGOs) - 2007 new „framework educational programmes“ for Elementary & Secondary schools + cross-cutting issues in coherence with DE principles 7.9.2015

3 What we have taken into account… Maastricht Declaration on Global Education to 2015 (2002) Brussels Conference Final Recommendation on Public Awareness and Development Education (2005) Helsinki Conference Conclusions on Development Education (2006) European Consensus Document (2007) GENE PEER REVIEW (2008) 7.9.2015

11 Lessons learned… 7.9.2015 The process is not over yet… Main lessons learned (so far…) Positive: -Dedicated and professional people (but quite a few in general…) -GDE Strategy could be quite easily linked with other „nationwide“ educational strategies and reforms (proper timing is important) -Strong support from NGOs and MFA (but mostly based on influential individuals…) Negative: -Small number of „informed“ actors (NGOs + few MFA/MEdu staff) -Low level of GDE issues knowledge among civil servants, teachers and general public -Administrative burdens (time & money issues)
