Global education


The implementation of the goals of Finland´s development policy relies on the essential support of Finnish citizens and the relevant interest groups. The Unit for Development Communications supports the Ministry´s departments and units in charge of development policy and development cooperation in communicating about their work. The common goal is to make both the policies and their relevance as well as the results of Finland´s development cooperation known among the stakeholders and the Finnish public. The guidelines for all the Ministry communications are openness, clarity and reliability. Timely communications, active cooperation with the media and strategic work with the stakeholders are all needed. Long-term global education is equally important as it paves the way for global citizenship. The new national core curricula were adopted in 2016 and provide ample space for global education in the general education. Agenda 2030 and SDGs further underline the significance of global education. The Unit for Development Communications supports global education in order to enhance responsible global citizenship among the Finnish youth. The MFA also continues the fruitful long-term cooperation with the education authorities. The allowance of 100 000 euros is reserved for global education projects during the years 2019-2020.
