Resource Details


“Dear Teacher….I have been dreaming about this book for more than a decade. I am, and always have been, passionate about Global Citizenship Education (GCE) and visualised this book because I wanted to provide students and teachers with an accessible starting point for learning about this important field.

…. I believe that teaching is a form of activism, and that incorporating GCE into our education system as early as possible is one of the most impactful actions we can take to contribute to shaping a more just and sustainable world for everyone.”
