The awareness of the greater impact of their choices in the world and taking an active role in society as local and global citizens with a greater understanding of the complexity of the world and society The project provided a good and bad practice analysis to build a toolkit and tutorials to share among the stakeholders, training and locals events to share the knowledge and build a network of organizations focus on the practice of GE.
