What is global learning?
The opportunities our fast-changing ‘globalised’ world offers young people are enormous. But so too are the challenges. Here at CDEC, we believe that Global Learning is the ‘golden thread’ that equips children with the knowledge, skills and values that they need to embrace the opportunities and challenges that they encounter, and to create the kind of world that they want to live in.
The active, participatory methods of Global Learning help young people to explore the interconnections between people and places around the world. They learn how decisions made by people in other parts of the world affect their lives and therefore how their decisions affect others.
At CDEC, we give you as teachers the opportunity to develop your skills to weave this golden thread of global citizenship into your school through continuing professional development courses for teachers, projects we run and through support we offer via our membership scheme.
