Why is Global Education a necessity for the 21st Century?

“Today’s high school students will graduate into a world vastly different from that of the 20th century. … To succeed in this new global age, our students will need a new skill set that goes beyond reading, math, and science to include international knowledge and skills.”

Vivian Stewart, VP Education, Asia Society

Why is Global Education a necessity for the 21st Century?

Education can, and should, help people meet the challenges they will confront now and in the future. Global Education is essential in helping young people rise to those challenges for the following reasons:

● Today, the lives of young people are shaped by what happens in other parts of the world. Global Education gives knowledge, understanding, skills and values they need to participate fully in ensuring their own, and others’, well-being and make a positive contribution.

● Global Citizenship involves a wide range of active and participatory learning methods. These engage the learner while developing confidence, self-esteem and skills of critical thinking, communication, co-operation and conflict resolution.
