For the first time in ASPnet's history,Teacher Education & Training Institutions (TEIs)  are forming a global community of practice to reorient teacher education and training towards Transformative Education for Global Citizenship (GCED) and Sustainable Development (ESD) and to develop and implement individual and collaborative change projects.

Since October 2020, the global community of practice has come together through webinars (webinar #1, webinar #2, webinar #3, webinar #4, webinar #5) and a 5-day-online Global Meeting to discuss opportunities and challenges as well as to share good practices on how to transform teaching and learning for global citizenship and sustainable development. The Global Meeting Resource Kit provides relevant materials and resources to reflect, get inspired and take action

Teacher educators from different countries are implementing this vision through collaborative change projects:


Teaching Together Global Citizenship for Sustainable Development (GC4SD) brings together student teachers from Argentina, Belgium, Finland, Japan, Kenya, the Philippines and Senegal to co-develop innovative and transformative learning activities for GCED-ESD.


Creating the future together through GCED and ESD brings together teacher educators, student teachers and their pupils from Kenya and Finland in multidisciplinary learning projects that involve GCED and ESD.
