Review the paper: ‘The Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World’ (Ehigie, 2021) and consider why Development Education is important and how you would try to include it in your own teaching and encourage colleagues to plan development education activities throughout your school.


Post a reflective piece (150 words min) to this forum as a reply to this post

I found this piece very comprehensive, balanced and informative. It encapsulates the perspectives of many from different viewpoints and draws conclusions that are realistic as well as thought provoking.

The individual can make a significant change in the world no matter how small.

Education for mutual respect and tolerance needs to be afforded to all.

Being realistic and optimistic in equal portions is important.

It is not simply about a singular issue- it encapsulates what it means to be a global citizen in this world.

This article has ideologies that are both aspirational and attainable- It focuses on the self and from that great things happen.

Education is key to this- both in school and in society; young and old benefit from education. We are life-long learners and it is important to recognise our value and importance in regards to change in this world as global citizens.
