On 31 January, the participants in the first edition of the MOOC (course) on Global Citizenship met online to get to know each other and share their experience of how they are applying what they are learning in their work.
At the moment there are 100 Marists, as pioneers, who are following the programme, which will be open to all those interested in the next edition.
In parallel to the course, the Marist University of Porto Alegre (PUCRS) is carrying out a research project directed by Brother Carlos Alberto Rojas. Its purpose is to learn about the practice of Global Citizenship in our schools. The results will help us to establish guidelines that will help us in the practice of this important task.
The subject of Global Citizenship is of special interest in current educational affairs, for all that it means in the defence of human dignity and the promotion of international solidarity.
As Marists, the aim of the course is to help teachers and those responsible for formation to promote Marcellin Champagnat’s purpose: “To form good Christians and virtuous citizens”, in today’s world.
If you are interested in connecting with other Marist members who are interested in Global Citizenship issues, join the AGORÁ group.
