Museo Mundial – Museums and NGOs Cooperating on Global Learning

On first of April started „Museo Mundial“ as a joint project of museums and NGDOs in Hungary, Czech Republic, Portugal and Germany. The objective is to develop an innovative approach of embedded Global Learning in museums in order to desseminate the MDGs amongst new target groups.

Museums often work on similar fields as NGDOs, such as trade, energy, housing, transport, environment, culture, etc. and provide opportunities to work on global topics, bringing development education to a broad public. The project gets together the experience of museums and NGDOs and until march 2016, the partners will develop and show 40 innovative tools of Global Learning for exhibitions of museums. All the process will be documented and later desseminated by an online multiplier database, a mini manual, as well as training courses for museum staff and NGOs.

The project is co-financed by the European Commission and is implemented by fourteen European partners, including the NGDOs forum for international development + planning – finep (D), Dachverband Entwicklungspolitik Baden-Württemberg – DEAB (D), Instituto Marquês de Valle Flôr – IMVF (PT), Hungarian Baptist Aid – HB Aid (HU), EDUCON (CZ) and Eurosolar (CZ), the museums Naturhistorische Gesellschaft Nürnberg e.V. – NHG (D), Museum of the Câmara Municipal de Loures – CML (PT), Národní zemědělské museum Praha – NZM (CZ), Magyar Vasúttörténeti Park/Hungarian Railway Museum (HU), Budapesti Történeti Múzeum (HU), Museum of Hungarian Agriculture (HU), Néprajzi Múzeum/Museum of Ethnography (HU) as well as the Instituto Politécnico de Leiria – IPL (PT).
