A CASE FOR GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION
The hope and promise of the fruits of democracy are based on the health and stability of the democratic fabric of the society and how we deal with the threats posed to this fabric.
A country can be a true world leader when its social, political and industrial structures are founded upon an enlightened citizenship.
There is widespread acceptance on the significant role of education in mitigating the threats to a healthy and vibrant democracy.
And there is a general consensus that expectations for citizen engagement are much broader —than merely voting and law abidance— for democracy; democratic institutions and processes to thrive.
Fostering Young People to Take Responsible Action.
