Global education is teaching and learning with a global perspective. Global education teaches about the interconnections of issues, regions, peoples, places, systems and times. Global education can be integrated into all levels and subjects of the curriculum.
Global education is active and experiential in nature, engaging the learner where he or she is, helping the student to develop tools which will aid her or him in understanding where she/he is and why. By emphasizing the interconnections between social justice, economic, environmental, and political issues, global education promotes a sense of connection with and social responsibility to people living around the world. Children are encouraged and empowered to be active, responsible local and global citizens, thus building a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.
