Global Learning

About global learning

In a fast changing, globalised world, education needs to help people understand the wider world around them and make the global connections between issues such as poverty or climate change and their own lives. It should prepare them to live and work in a global society and economy and engage them to make the world a better place.

Learning in a global context enpowers

  • critical and creative thinking;
  • self-awareness and open-mindedness towards difference;
  • understanding of global issues and power relationships; and
  • optimism and action for a better world.
