We live in an increasingly globalized world that enriches our lives, but also poses huge challenges. In this webinar we’ll look how we can support students not just in developing the linguistic skills to navigate this world, but also the skills to thrive as global citizens. Participants will take home ideas for including global citizenship education in their classrooms.
