  4. Current projects of the GE centre (1): Watch and Change – development education though documentary films is a project which uses contemporary interesting documentaries on global themes as method and material in global education. It is based on the experience of a Czech organisation People in Need which is also the lead partner in the project. Other partners are People in Peril (Slovakia) and Civic Education Centre (Poland). From the project mediatheque teachers can loan out films on global themes on DVD. From the Maailmakool.ee portal they find background and methodological materials that have been developed for the films. Teachers are also trained on global issues and on how to use films in teaching. Young people are encouraged to form their own film clubs where they can widen the world views of their peers though watching films and discussing them. The project also organises film screenings for schools at film festivals, film making trainings for young people, competitions etc.

The initiative will enable schools to access training on Social Justice and use of a new Social Justice Framework. The GE centre supports a team of minimum 3 teachers in each school to develop new cross-curricular modules which engage students in thinking about sustainable futures in relation to their own lives. The lead parther in the project is Leeds DEC. Other partners IMVF (Portugal), The African Institute (Slovenia), Open Education centre (Bulgaria) and GLEN Latvia.
