Global Citizens Club

Introduction:
In the world we find ourselves today, it is important to teach the young ones and impact the adults with the mindset that we are all one, despite race, color, religion or any other differences. We are basically humans before any other identification/culture. That is the idea behind Global Citizenship education which was initiated by UNESCO as a way of giving everyone a sense of oneness and preaching the message of love in a bid to curb discrimination and every other ill that has evolved with humans.

Goal:
This global concept developed by UNESCO, empowers students to engage and resume active roles both locally and globally to face and resolve global challenges and ultimately become proactive contributors to a more just, peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and sustainable world.

Aims:
  • Develop an understanding of global governance structure rights and responsibilities, global issues and connections between global, national and local systems and processes.
  • Recognize and appreciate difference and multiple identities e.g. culture, language, religion, gender and our common humanity, and develop skills for living in an increasingly diverse world.
  • Develop and apply critical skills for civil literacy e.g. critical inquiry, information technology, media literacy, critical thinking, decision-making, problem solving, negotiation, peace building and personal and social responsibility.
  • Recognize and examine beliefs and values and how they influence political and social decision-making, perceptions about social justice and civic engagement.
  • Develop attitudes of care and empathy for others and the environment and respect for diversity.
  • Develop values of fairness and social justice, and skills to critically analyze inequalities based on gender, socio-economic status, culture, religion, age and other issues.
  • Participate in, and contribute to, contemporary global issues at local, national and global levels as informed, engaged, responsible and responsive global citizens.
