Global Learning


Global learning is essentially ‘education for a fair and sustainable world.’ In other words, a world free of poverty where all human beings are treated with respect and dignity and where individuals, communities, businesses and countries behave and develop in a way which meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of other people and future generations. Key global learning concepts include poverty, global inequality, social justice, sustainable development and global interdependence.

The GLP enriches the learning process, connects learning and brings an exciting new dimension to existing subjects, such as literacy and maths. It develops young people's understanding of global issues and empowers them as global citizens to take action for a fair and sustainable world.
