Sample text

Living Global Citizenship emphasises the participation by pupils in cross-community projects which enable a more ‘Living’ immersive educational experience that develops cultural-empathy within participants.

Nussbaum (1997) argues for educational cosmopolitanism by saying that the accident of where one is born is just that, an accident; any human being might have been born in any nation.

This in itself would strengthen democracy. The UK government’s ideas on the Big Society ignore the global dimension and are focused on solving problems in the United Kingdom.
