Global Citizenship Education

Global citizenship education refers to a sense of belonging to a broader community and common humanity. It emphasises political, economic, social and cultural interdependency and interconnectedness between the local, the national and the global. […] Global citizenship education entails three core conceptual dimensions, which are common to various definitions and interpretations of global citizenship education. […] They can serve as the basis for defining global citizenship education goals, learning objectives and competencies, as well as priorities for assessing and evaluating learning. These core conceptual dimensions are based on, and include, aspects from all three domains of learning: cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioural.”
