While Global Citizenship Education is recognised by many as a powerful tool to resolve the current global challenges our world is facing, the level of investment by national governments remains limited. Why is that? To answer this situation, CONCORD launches its new report “Global Citizenship Education – How much do we care?“. Based on a research across all EU Member States (+ Norway), this publication reveals the level of funding dedicated to Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in Europe between 2011 and 2015.


Analysing the quantitative sources of investments by national governments as well as the qualitative narrative around GCE (How is GCE named? What is its framework of action?), this report digs into the complex world of GCE and provides a full picture of its current states in Europe.


The report is composed of 2 parts:

– a general overview and analysis

– a comparative part made of an analysis per country of all EU member states (+ Norway), including interesting details on GCE definitions, concepts, funding trends.

Strong of these analysis, the report draws conclusions and recommendations on where possible improvements at policy and advocacy level can be made.
