Universitat Jaume I (SPAIN)
Democratization and global governance frameworks are mainly grounded on the potentially of the civil society. A global governance that becomes indispensable because the current problems and the future challenges are global. Nevertheless, this new way of managing the public matters do not constitute only a joint international management, but the different offers insist on a global democracy understood in a Greek sense of democracy. That’s means, democracy as form of life. This implies the participation of the civil society to all levels (local, national, regional and international).

The purpose of this paper is to revise the literature that has been developed around this subject and scheme a proposal in order to develop a cosmopolitan moral education. In order to achieve this general purpose the paper will be divided in three sections. Section one will defend the education as a fundamental tool for empowered the civil society and to increase the civil participation in the global questions. Section two will analyze the theories and current practices of the educational institution, in general, and of the civic education, especially, in order to quarrel if they are enough to achieve that the civil society turns into an actor distinguished inside the global governance. Finally, third section will show a scheme framework of cosmopolitan moral education that allows us the development of a strong civil society in two levels -locally and globally- and capable to participate in an equal and effective way in the global governance.
