The Foundation for Education and Development is the centre for Global Education in Switzerland.
By promoting Global Education in Swiss Schools we support an education that enables children to become responsible citizens in a globalized world. Therefore we provide teaching material, teacher-training, background information and advice about Global Education to teachers from elementary school to high-school level. As quite many NGO’s in the field of Global Learning offer qualified training-units for schools, we act as networkers, between teachers and NGOs
The Foundation for Education and Development has four regional branches: in Zurich and Berne (German speaking part of the country), Lausanne (French speaking part) and Lugano (Italien speaking part). The Head-office is in Berne. The foundation is supported by the Swiss government, the cantons, the teacher unions and various NGOs.
