In 2007, Alberta became the first province in Canada to mandate global citizenship in K-12 educational curriculum. Working with youth and educators from around the world, CGCER has created a curriculum which educators can access in order to teach students about global citizenship. The curriculum is framed through the learning objectives for understanding global citizenship, as identified by UNESCO (http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0023/002329/232993e.pdf).

Key ideas in the curriculum for exploring global citizenship are:

1. Considering local, national, and global systems and structure

2. Understanding underlying assumptions and power dynamics

3. Difference and respect for diversity

4. Ethically responsible engagement

In this workshop, facilitators will walk participants through the curriculum and discuss how all or parts of the curriculum and activities can be utilized in conjunction with ALL programs of studies in order to facilitate teaching and learning of global citizenship.
