On Sunday 20th of March Dr. Katarina Popovic, Professor at the Department for Andragogy, Faculty of Philosophy, University-of Belgrade & Dr. Henry Charles, Youth and Policy Development Expert; were the speakers for the second session of the second module of the Global Student Forum GSF Academy: “Democracy, Human Rights and Active Global Citizenship Education”.

The session reflected on the developments made on Democracy, Human Rights and Active Global Citizenship Education and how the approach to education for human rights and democracy also requires deep insight into the contextual and cultural differences that shape the very notion of citizenship itself. By the end of the session, participants had a greater understanding. Global active citizenship is much more than the set of skills, but includes knowledge, a strong emotional component and development of agency – capacity and willingness for action.
