We start with a very simple question: should learning prepare individuals for life and work in an increasingly globalised world? If so, what’s the best way of doing this?
Some people argue that the answer to this question is basically teaching a foreign language and developing ICT skills. Although these are two very important aspects of education, we think that the answer requires more than that, it involves a new approach to education called global learning.
In simple terms, global learning (or global citizenship education) is about promoting: self-awareness and open-mindedness towards difference; understanding of global issues and their connections with local realities; critical thinking skills for exploring a wide range of topics from different perspectives; and ethical values and a positive attitude for a just, peaceful and sustainable world.
Whilst most of this approach takes place in the form of curriculum development, lesson planning and teaching practice, other aspects such as the ethos of the organisation and the type of extra-curricular activities it offers can have a profound effect on the way people learn and interact with each other.
MUNDI addresses all these levels systematically and can enable your organisation to become a beacon of excellence in education. In fact, many of the schools we work with have achieved important awards in recognition to the high quality of their teaching and their progressive vision of education. You can be part of this change too!
