Museo Mundial

Global learning in museums does hardly exist. However, museums are a great place to introduce global learning to the general public. The project aims at closing this gap: it develops an innovative approach on how to integrate global learning into museums. To reach this goal museums and development NGOs in Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany and Portugal will work together and take the challenge.

  • Week of action to global learning in museums
  • Trainings for museum guides on how to implement global topics in museums
  • Trainings for development NGOs on the project idea
  • Manual on development education in museums
  • Internet platform illustratnig innovative examples on global learning in museums
