This paper ‘The Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World’ was as informative as it was interesting. This year in particular, my classroom has turned a 360 as regards children from different economic and cultural backgrounds. This paper helped enormously to develop my bank of language that I can share with the children as we talk and learn about Global citizenship and events that are shaping and changing our world. The idea of the children learning the skill to empathise is one that will benefit them throughout all other subjects areas and life in general. The children will be empowered to learn that they can make a difference, however big or small. The resources shared here are invaluable and will be important as we take a child centered approach to showing the children how they can appreciate and accept different cultures and nationalities into their classrooms and communities. I am looking forward to exploring the rest of the subject matter included in the course
