This webinar will review the current state of play of global citizenship education as well as make suggestions as to how it might be further developed going forward. We will also look at how character education can be used to promote and achieve a much needed set of shared global objectives.
In his 2008 book, economist Jeffrey Sachs makes clear that teaching global citizenship is critical to our future: “The defining challenge of the twenty-first century will be to face the reality that humanity shares a common fate on a crowded planet. That common fate will require new forms of global cooperation, a fundamental point of blinding simplicity that many world leaders have yet to understand or embrace.”
