In the words of Chelsea Clinton: It's Your World: Get Informed. Get Inspired. And Get Going! Global citizenship is about acknowledging the interconnectedness and interdependent nature of our world. It is about understanding the need to tackle injustice and inequality, and having the desire and ability to work actively to do so. It is about valuing the earth as precious and unique, and safeguarding the future for those coming after us. My aim is to make this an auspicious and engaging course in which all students will participate in discussion and activities on such topics as: Human Rights; Environmental Responsibility and Sustainable Development; Cultural Identity and Diversity; Poverty, Hunger, Disease; Gender Equality; and Armed Conflict and World Peace. Course Goals: -To increase knowledge in a fun and engaging manner about the wider world and to examine our place in it. -To inspire and motivate students to become involved citizens of their local communities, their countries, and the earth. -To foster an understanding that we are all connected and that we all have the power, regardless of age or background, both individually and collectively, to effect great and positive change in the world.
