Global learning in museums hardly existed in the past, despite museums being an ideal environment to introduce global learning to the general public. This project closed the gap: it developed an innovative approach on how to integrate global learning into museums. To reach this goal, museums and development NGOs in Hungary, the Czech Republic, Germany and Portugal have worked together and accepted the challenge. Two examples were: including information on modern slavery around the world in a natural history museum, and presenting the right to universal primary education in a railway museum.
More information about the project, as well as the detailed description of the 40 innovative casual learning tools can be found on our project website.
