Under the initiative of the Lithuanian NGDO Platform, Lithuanian NGOs working in the fields of education and public awareness raising have formed a group seeking to add the global dimension to the Lithuanian education system. During the recent years, there have been a growing number of attempts to integrate sustainable development aspects (especially environmental dimension) into the official documents regulating public education in Lithuania. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement of formal and non-formal education in educating citizens who are globally sensitive and responsible. Whilst Lithuania is emerging as a donor state, there is still a lack of education, which explores social and economic issues. Therefore, the NGOs call for implementation of the EU recommended global education programmes which aims at developing deeper knowledge about global sustainable development, human rights and intercultural learning.
