This one just popped up on my radar:
2nd European Congress on Global Education - Lisboa 2012
There seems to be opportunities to raise both the issue of a Global
Convention on R&D and (global) access to knowledge issues, for example
Open Access and the http://www.righttoresearch.org initiative.
At the core of the Congress is the Council of Europe's North-South
Centre definition of Global Education:
- Global Education is education that opens people's eyes and minds
to the realities of the world, and awakens them to bring about a
world of greater justice, equity and human rights for all.
- Global Education is understood to encompass Development Education,
Human Rights Education, Education for Sustainability, Education for
Peace and Conflict Prevention and Intercultural Education; being the
global dimensions of Education for Citizenship.
Thanks for hints whether this is already under way.
