Abstract The Great Transition of the world is visible as climate change and other
phenomena jeopardizing the survival of humankind. This creates challenges for
the world collective, characterizing the tentative link between world society as a
communication offer and the world community to deal with the normative agenda
of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. This leads to learning challenges
(approachable through concepts of Global Learning1) dealt with in various
educational facilities (especially the school as universalized educational facility)
to realize Education For All and Lifelong Learning. Global Citizenship Education
in its historic-systematic approach and as a decolonized and democratic concept
offers feasible paths to deal with the implicit tension of normative hope and
cognitive pragmatism for future perspectives.
