Global Citizenship Concepts in the Curricula of Four Countries


Global Citizenship Education (GECD) is a concept that lies at the heart of UNESCO's vision of education for the 21st century.  The authentic vision of GCED is to foster the knowledge, values, skills and behaviors of learners in a well-balanced manner, so that they are able to use these attributes to become responsible citizens of their community, their country and the world. Through a holistic,transformative approach in understanding global and local phenomena, learners should be encouraged to reflect on the values of GCED and act upon them towards a more inclusive, fair and sustainable society.
