Global Connections

What is a global citizen?

A global citizen:
  • understands Stewardship and Carrying Capacity – we only have one planet and we need to take care of it for the sake of future generations
  • appreciates Interdependence - our lives are inextricably bound up with everyone else on the planet, through the air we breathe, the food we eat – in this globalised society we need to understand more about our impact on one another
  • is concerned about Justice and equity – these are local as well as global concern 
  • celebrates diversity while understanding that we share more similarities than differences 
  • has rights but knows they bring responsibilities 
  • is prepared to take action, however small, to bring change to make the world a fairer place– whether it’s what’s happening in our school, neighbourhood or the wider world A global approach encourages critical thinking. 

To find out more about this global approach take a look at the Highland One World Group website
