New Project: Bridge 47 – Building Global Citizenship

EADI is a partner to the new Bridge 47 project which is facilitated by KEHYS, the Finnish NGDO platform to the European Union. EADI takes the leading role in the work on Knowledge Exchange Partnerships which aim to ensure a free flow of ideas and best practices for Global Citizenship Education (GCE) between research institutions and civil society organisations.

Bridge 47 promotes education and EADI’s work is focused on the partnerships. EADI aims to build new and strengthen existing partnerships to facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers and practitioners and bridge communication gaps between civil society organisations and academia through a series of events, workshops and conferences which will be spaced over the next years.
