Global Citizenship... laying the foundation for a culture of peace

 » Viewpoint: How to foster global citizenship through education

Global Citizenship, that is a sense of solidarity between citizens across the world, is increasingly important in today’s society. As we grow increasingly connected and interact with many different people so global citizenship teaches people of all ages not simply to understand these differences but to embrace them.

Global Citizenship Education (GCED) aims to equip learners of all ages with those values, knowledge and skills that are based on human rights, social justice, diversity, gender equality and environmental sustainability. It aims to empower learners to be responsible global citizens. GCED gives learners the competencies and opportunity to realize their rights and obligations to promote a better world and future for all.
