The Bridge 47 – Building Global Citizenship project mobilises global civil society to contribute to global justice and eradication of poverty through Global Citizenship Education (GCE).

The project focuses on joint advocacy efforts and building new partnerships, while it also supports the civil society to develop new and effective approaches to reaching out to new stakeholders and provides tools to promote and act upon Global Citizenship Education. The project works closely with partners engaged in informal and non-formal education and life-long learning with a view to promoting transformative change in society. Download the full tender here

2019/06 – Transnational Institute (TNI); book; Editor(s): Lavinia Steinfort, Satoko Kishimoto

This open access book by the Transnational Institute draws on real-world examples to demonstrate that a political economy that curbs the power of big finance and serves people and planet is possible. The ideas shared here are timely and urgent—a call to readiness before the next financial bubble bursts. This book presents visions of regenerative and redistributive economies, built with collective power: from the thriving cooperative economy in Kerala, India, to the hundreds of local saving banks in Germany, the worker-owned bank Banco Popular in Costa Rica, and the thousands of People’s Credit Funds in Vietnam. It explores models that could become the new normal— the basis for a democratically organised and life-sustaining future.

2019/06 – OECD Development Centre (OECD/DC); Text; Author(s): Jacqueline Wood; Karin Fällman

Civil society and civil society organisations (CSOs) are important to development co-operation, both as implementing partners for members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC), and as development actors in their own right. Agenda 2030 is clear on the necessity of mobilising CSOs to implement, and uphold accountability for, the Sustainable Development Goals. This paper by the OECD Development Centre introduces a selection of key findings and recommendations from two 2018-2019 surveys complemented with DAC statistical data. It points to evidence of member effort to work with CSOs in ways that enable CSOs to maximise their contribution to development.
