The New MSG is here!
The new DEAR Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) was established in May 2022. Of the 30+ selected applications, half are new to the MSG. They include civil society organisations (CSOs), local authorities (LAs), youth groups, Member State representatives, scholars, as well as Global Education Network Europe (GENE), the Council of Europe’s North-South Centre and past or running DEAR project representatives.
The MSG will work with the European Commission and engage in policy exchange and coordination relevant for the DEAR Programme. During the three year mandate, members will develop and support ideas on how to strengthen the impact of global citizenship education and awareness raising in Europe.
The call for expression of interest was open in winter 2021. The selection criteria entailed both quality and diversity, covering geographic distribution, typology of organisation, unique perspectives and more. There is still space for additional LAs, youth organisations and a Member State representative to join during the three year mandate.
For more information on the past call for interest, visit the initial Capacity4Dev post. Thank you very much to all who participated. We look forward to innovative and fruitful work together!
