Abstract [en]

Global development has the mission to promote social change and renewal in developing countries on a scientific basis. For this purpose the paper presents a concept for creating five good circles for society building of poor communities. This concept is further elaborated and discussed in terms of sustainability development and sustainable information systems. For one of the good circles “active learning” we illustrate how a deliberate use of tools for ICT4D (ICT for Development) can support special education for needy children and exposed mothers. Our knowledge interest is to set-up professional training spaces, called Community Children Academy Spaces (CAS), grounded on an Edducation For All (EFA) perspective for social inclusion of poor people in civil societies.
