Developing capacities together - Raising public awareness of development issues and promoting development policy education in the European Union


Thirteen organisations from 12 different EU countries specialising in teacher training, education reform, sustainable development and migration issues and more than 40 other partners from across the EU (local authorities, ministries, universities and civil society organisations) are supporting the InterCap project with EuropeAid funds.

In addition to the German Committee of the World University Service (WUS), the following organizations are participating in the project: CARDET (Cyprus), WUS Austria (Austria), Oxfam Italia Intercultura (Italy), Diversity Development Group (Lithuania), the University of Split (Croatia), the Institute for University Co-operation Onlus [ICU] (Italy), Family and Childcare Centre [KMOP] (Greece), KOPIN (Malta), Liverpool World Centre (UK), Anti-discrimination Education Association [TEA] (Poland), Euro-training (Bulgaria) and the Institute for Global Education and Projects Development [Zavod Global] (Slovenia).

The project envisages to address the emerging concern on the way in which shifting public perceptions of (in-)security and risk influence understanding of migration, sustainable development, roles, responsibilities and lifestyles of EU citizens in an interdependent world.

With regard to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), European networks between civil society organisations (CSOs) and universities are being established to promote global learning on migration, security and sustainable development in an interdependent world while strengthening the capacities of educational stakeholders in this field.

In addition, various practice-oriented projects involving civil society organisations, universities and local communities as well as a training package comprising six modules are offered. The training package corresponds to two ECTS points (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) and was designed for both online- and face-to-face sessions.

InterCap  thus delivers a non-formal development education and global learning programme that caters to teacher trainers' and teachers’ interests, needs and availability and enables them to progressively engage with development through various “stages” of participation.
