I really agree with everything you have said here. The need to care and empathise is something we need to communicate to children because this is the only way to develop their role as Global Citizens. It is up to us to model and promote this, as you have said. Focusing on our locality can allow children to relate to it more concretely but then expose them to global issues. I think it’s a great idea to promote global citizenship through watching New2Day. They have fantastic pieces, that really engage the children. I use this regularly in my class, but it would be great to have a focus of Global Citizenship and use it as a stimulus for further lessons.
