Component 3: Higher education

We communicate with a large group of stakeholders from universities and secondary schools, and work with students, business actors and NGOs . We establish networks to promote global learning and support the integration of the global dimension at university and at school. A continuous dialogue will take place with those involved, about how global learning can be integrated into the curriculum and everyday classroom life. Important actors will be included in the formulation of suggestions for improving the curriculum.

New ways will be shown, as to how the global dimension can be anchored in lectures. A simulation game and seminars on CSR will be developed and tested at a university in Berlin. The contents tested in Berlin will be adapted and subsequently also applied in Linz. The following topics will be dealt with: fair procurement, international labour standards, human rights and corporate accountability. In this way, students are to become more aware of their responsibility as future leaders and decision-makers.
