For more than ten years the Variants educational programme of the humanitarian organization “People in Need” has offered information service and methodological support in the field of Intercultural (ICE) and Global Development Education (GDE). Every year, more than 1500 primary and secondary school teachers, students of various specializations, NGO employees, public service employees and other individuals benefit from courses, seminars and workshops offered and prepared by the Variants team.
Apart from the educational events, the program also focuses on the publication and creation of new teaching materials aimed at individual ICE and GDE topics as well as modern teaching methods and current trends in pedagogy. A substantial part of the Variants activity is thus the support of inclusive education and systematic measures leading to desegregation of the Czech educational system and the integration of Intercultural and Global Development Education topics into curriculums of schools in the Czech Republic.
The main goals of the Variants programme:
- Support of inclusive environment and open climate at schools.
- Education towards global responsibility.
