Saskatchewan Curriculum-Based Global Citizenship Education Modules
In this globalized world, the challenges that face humanity are increasingly global in scope and therefore require global solutions. This has significant implications for K to 12 teachers, teacher-educators, and curriculum developers, who are responsible for educating the next generation of global citizens to rise to the challenge.
In order to move humanity towards sustainable, peaceful solutions to global challenges, schools need to prepare students to become critically informed, motivated, globally competent citizens with social problem-solving skills and a willingness to challenge misinformation and government inaction.
Through global citizenship education, educators can support the development of 21st-century citizens that internalize the values, master the skills, acquire the knowledge, and experience the sense of empowerment needed to tackle these challenges.
