Connecting Water to Global Citizenship through Education for Sustainable Development

Connecting Water to Global Citizenship

The Connecting Water to Global Citizenship via Education for Sustainable Development (CW2GC) study is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ES/S000151/1), UK. It is based at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge. This is an interdisciplinary comparative study of community-based waterway regeneration projects in South Africa and England. Amongst other things, CW2GC aims to understand if and how the kind of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) that takes place in community-based waterway regeneration projects engenders a sense of being part of a global community. We seek to understand what being a global citizen means to young people who engage with the process of regenerating waterways and water bodies. Another important aim of this project is to create case profiles of the organisations that we are studying (based in South Africa and England) that will be openly accessible through this website so that other organisations designing similar projects can use these profiles for scenario forecasting.
