Schools for Global Citizenship Education
21st Century is truly era of Global Citizenship. Those who aspire to develop with the changing demands of the time need to understand the requirements and equip themselves with all necessary skills and attitudes.
Global citizenship education is based on the three domains of learning – the cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioral. These correspond to the four pillars of learning described in the report ‘Learning: The Treasure Within’: Learning to know, to do, to be and to live together.
- Cognitive: knowledge and thinking skills necessary to better understand the world and its complexities.
Learners acquire knowledge and understanding of local, national and global issues and the interconnectedness and interdependency of different countries and populations
Learners develop skills for critical thinking and analysis
- Socio-emotional: values, attitudes and social skills that enable learners to develop affectively, psychosocially, and physically and to enable them to live together with others respectfully and peacefully.
Learners experience a sense of belonging to a common humanity, sharing values and
Responsibilities, based on human rights
Learners develop attitudes of empathy, solidarity and respect for differences and
- Behavioural: conduct, performance, practical application and engagement.
Learners act effectively and responsibly at local, national and global levels for a more peaceful and sustainable world
Learners develop motivation and willingness to take necessary actions
We work with schools to align their curriculum to the demands of Global Citizenship Education, equip teachers and periodically monitor the outcome to achieve stated objectives.
This is a three to five year project.
