Global Citizenship and 21st Century Skills
What is Global Citizenship?
In our definition – a global citizen is someone who has a complex and deep understanding of the world as well as their place in it. With this knowledge, they are able to take an active role in their community, and work collaboratively with others to make the world more equal, just, and sustainable. Global citizenship puts focus on a holistic and interconnected view of politics, economics, and human rights.
Throughout our work, we empower individuals to develop 21st century skills to be successful in the world. By building immersive workshops and experiential learning we’ve seen multiple benefits our in-company and public trainings.
Placing value on global citizenship helps people to:
- Think critically
- Develop mindfulness
- Grow as a Leader
- Challenge ignorance and intolerance
- Get involved in their local, national, and global communities
- Find voice and the necessary tools to make positive change
Maybe more notable than any of the benefits to individuals is the excitement it creates in people to discover their passion find ways to achieve their goals.
