I found the article “The role of Global citizens in Today’s World” informative with a powerful impact without being a complex read. It is very relatable by asking the reader to reflect on their own personal history, whilst highlighting injustices and inequalities in the world. It makes me reflect on our role as educators in shaping children’s awareness of their roles as global citizens.
I teach in a community national school setting in an urban area. We strive to create an inclusive school community with an awareness for the culture, heritage and history of all our pupils. I think the article highlights the importance for children to reflect on their own global citizenship creating an awareness for empathy, equity and equality in today’s world to create a sense of togetherness and community. Our school has a diversity committee who are excellent are developing whole school initiatives and ideas around the idea of global citizenship and positive awareness towards all aspects of diversity.
