Education for global citizenship helps enable young people to develop the core competencies which allow them to actively engage with the world, and help to make it a more just and sustainable place.
Global citizenship is not an additional subject, it is an ethos. It is best implemented through a whole-school approach, involving everyone from pupils themselves to the wider community. It can also be promoted in class through teaching the existing curriculum in a way that highlights aspects such as social justice, the appreciation of diversity and the importance of sustainable development.
We think the best way for teachers to deliver global citizenship is by following a Learn-Think-Act process with their students.
