For teachers

The Taksvärkki campaign has a strong Global citizenship education component

The goal of Taksvärkki´s global citizenship education is to raise a sense of global responsibility in Finnish youth.

Taksvärkki’s volunteer Global Educators visit elementary and secondary schools in different parts of Finland and hold workshops on equality, discrimination against people with disabilities and children’s rights. These participatory workshops are complemented by high-quality learning materials and study packages for teachers. 

Currently the learning materials of What is stopping you? campaign are not available in English. You can find the campaign’s learning material in Finnish and the same learning material in Swedish.

”How can youth make a change in this world. Well one way is to run in every election once you turn 18. If you win, you can bring out your opinions. In general, you can question the structures and norms of society, it already helps a lot.”
