<p class=”MsoNormal”>This paper ‘The Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World’ (Ehigie, 2021) is very thought provoking. It covers many areas that are linked to the objectives of this  Developmental Education Course. It addresses various themes that are fundamental to creating and maintaining an equal and fair world. The ‘system of self’ emphasises the individual decisions that we make and the impact our decisions have, especially as educators.</p>
<p class=”MsoNormal”>I work in a large urban school in which Human Rights are explored in classes. There are several books and videos that are aimed at exploring Rights of the Child, Human Rights and Global Goals in a child friendly manner. They are aimed at reducing inequality in a learner and process centred way. My colleagues and I  aim to celebrate diversity and differences.</p>
<p class=”MsoNormal”>We can see how critical literacy allows multiple perspectives and encourages us to critically analyse information to see the root of issues and to be aware that people are still being victimised. The local and global community communities have a responsibility to support one another.</p>
