Envision 4.7: Imagining a future with Target 4.7


The opening session of Imagine 4.7 will start with a welcome address by Chair and Founder of Bridge 47, Rilli Lappalainen, followed by remarks by European Commissioner for International Partnerships Jutta Urpilainen. This will be followed by a panel discussion titled “Envision 4.7: Imagining a Future with Target 4.7.”.

In 2019, Envision 4.7 brought together experts from different countries, sectors and backgrounds to create a collaborative policy roadmap for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 4.7 in Europe.

Two years on, the world has changed significantly. As we begin to recover from a global pandemic and continue to build a more socially just and sustainable future, transformative education has never been more important.

This event revisits the Envision 4.7 Roadmap, to highlight the continued relevance of collaborating on transformative education in our ever-changing world. It explores the ways in which joint action has been taken in national, regional and global contexts, and invites us to imagine our next steps forward on the path to implementing Target 4.7.

Framing - How to Engage Your Audience


Interested in framing and finding engaging approaches to your work? In this session, we want to present innovative methodology for engaging citizens to the Sustainable Development Goals, and share reflections, successes and learning outcomes from projects around Europe.

You will be introduced to innovative ways of applying framing in your communication and Global Citizenship Education work. Also, we will introduce you to using the engagement pyramid in an easy, hands-on way that can be helpful in understanding your target groups and how to move them. Participants will be equipped with concrete tools to evaluate and have an opportunity to reflect on their own work!

We want to inspire GCE practitioners working on the same topics, but also encourage finding new ideas and ways of looking at familiar issues.

Frame, Voice, Report! was a fund for civil society organisations with the objective of strengthening awareness and engagement among EU citizens in relation to the SDGs.

Organisers:

Project Frame, Voice, Report! partners: CISU, Wilde Ganzen, Lafede.cat, COP, RESACOOP, Fingo and 11.11.11

Education 2048


In this session, you will be invited to participate in a head and heart experiment called “Education 2048”.

In the first part of the experiment, you will be invited to imagine yourself as participants in a 3D virtual-reality world-Skype call that takes place in the year 2048. In this call, people across the globe have gathered to decide the direction of education after a period of catastrophic events. These events have happened as a result of poor human choices followed by a period where humanity managed to be taught by the consequences of their actions and to co-exist in wiser and healthier ways.

In the second part of the experiment, you will be invited to consider questions about the scenario and questions related to your affective responses to the experiment itself. You will be invited to process your responses through engagement with the poem Co-sensing with Radical Tenderness.

Singing for Sustainability: Facilitating Transformative Learning through Group Songwork


Songwork is a transformative learning practice that uses collective singing to open spaces for different ways of knowing. It builds on millennia of Indigenous folk-song tradition, as well as scientific research showing the benefits of singing for wellbeing and long-term memory. In contrast to the popular view of singing as competition or performance, songwork is non-hierarchical and non-judgmental, focusing on the lyrics and inner experience.

This is an experiential learning session, distinct from both 'head-centered' workshops and traditional artistic performances. The session is structured around the ‘Songs of the Gathering (Three Circles)’ song cycle by Ash Brockwell, which has four aims: supporting people to be fully present with each other and the land, making meaningful connections, holding space for quiet reflection, and using intuitive heart-wisdom as a foundation for creative conversations. The overarching goal is to build the missing ninth ESD competency: eco-social competency, or 'systems-feeling'.

Partnerships Beyond Ticking the Boxes


Is it possible to build international non-profit partnerships between the organisations from oppressed and oppressor nations that are just and equitable? This workshop will be co-facilitated by a Scottish NGO and an Indian NGO to analyse if and how we can apply principles of design justice towards building a framework for such partnerships.

Participants will explore current challenges in such relationships and will be walked through principles of design justice in an interactive way to build a new framework within which such partnerships can be designed.

We will ask tough questions about identity, aid, oppression and correction of systemic injustices while we undergo this exercise. To narrow the scope of the workshop we will focus on the theme of Global Citizenship Education (GCE). Within this we will explore how knowledge, skills and values can be moved away from being euro centric to account for the realities of the larger world and especially those of oppressed nations, often referred to as the 'Global South'.

We aim to facilitate this through a mix of theory, interactive discussions and active application to case studies.

Partnerships Beyond Ticking the Boxes


Is it possible to build international non-profit partnerships between the organisations from oppressed and oppressor nations that are just and equitable? This workshop will be co-facilitated by a Scottish NGO and an Indian NGO to analyse if and how we can apply principles of design justice towards building a framework for such partnerships.

Participants will explore current challenges in such relationships and will be walked through principles of design justice in an interactive way to build a new framework within which such partnerships can be designed.

We will ask tough questions about identity, aid, oppression and correction of systemic injustices while we undergo this exercise. To narrow the scope of the workshop we will focus on the theme of Global Citizenship Education (GCE). Within this we will explore how knowledge, skills and values can be moved away from being euro centric to account for the realities of the larger world and especially those of oppressed nations, often referred to as the 'Global South'.

We aim to facilitate this through a mix of theory, interactive discussions and active application to case studies.

Transformative Learning for Powerful Civil Society


How can transformative learning and unlearning help civil society better respond to the volatile futures we face? How do we create the conditions for sustainable and peaceful futures to emerge? This session explores the potential of transformative learning as a driving force in the work of civil society.

Despite civil society’s successful awareness-raising around many interrelated struggles, inequalities continue to rise. Sole access to information, although an important step, is just a first step. Planting seeds for a different world to emerge requires rethinking ways we create dialogue spaces with citizens, as well as recognizing potential for improvement in the ways we do things.

After provocations by Helena Sirén Gualinga (Indigenous environmental and human rights activist from the Kichwa Sarayaku community in Pastaza, Ecuador), Manish Jain (Shikshantar Institute and Swaraj University), Karen Pashby (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Robbie Guevara (International Council for Adult Education, ICAE) participants will be invited to envisage a different civil society and share ideas as to how transformative learning can build civil society capacity in a fishbowl format.
