With so much going on in our world right now, especially here in the United States, we are at a time where we must focus on what we can do in our daily lives to better the communities around us and continue to build our global perspective.
Leading ourselves and the kids in our lives to continue learning, seeing, and trying to truly understand how situations impact or relate to people all around the world can make a huge difference in the world.
Being a global citizen takes consistent effort and awareness, but it allows us and our children (or students) to understand the wider world and their place in it. We are more likely to take an active role in our community and work with others to make our planet more peaceful, sustainable, and fair.
We’ve got a great series of videos on communities and citizenship. Your kids (or students) can watch our videos to learn the ins and outs of what a citizen is and find out what it takes to be a good one. They can also compare and contrast the everyday lives of people around the globe and learn that there are similarities all over the world.
Remember, being a global citizen takes consistent effort and awareness. Start simple by watching some of the valuable videos in our database, volunteering at a local nonprofit for a cause you are passionate about, taking a walk in a local park and picking up pieces of trash, or even attending a free cultural event in your community.
YOU can help build a deeper capacity for yourself and the kids in your life.
Here’s to continual growth and understanding.
