What is Education for Citizenship, Sustainable
Development and Global Citizenship?
3
Discuss
  • Do you feel like a citizen of
  • Wales
  • UK
  • Europe
  • the World?
  • What qualities would describe a responsible
    global citizen?

4
A Global Citizen (Oxfams definition)
  • is aware of the wider world and has a sense of
    their own role as a world citizen,
  • respects and values diversity
  • has an understanding of how the world works
    economically, politically, socially, culturally,
    technologically and environmentally,
  • is outraged by social injustice,
  • participates in, and contributes to, the
    community at a range of levels from local to
    global,
  • is willing to act to make the world a more
    sustainable and equitable place,
  • takes responsibilities for their actions

5
Sustainable Development
  • Enables people to develop the knowledge, values
    and skills to participate in decisions about the
    way we do things individually and collectively,
    both locally and globally, that will improve the
    quality of life now without damaging the planet
    for the future.

The key concepts of education for sustainable
development and global citizenship are
  • Interdependence
  • Citizenship and stewardship
  • Needs and rights
  • Diversity
  • Sustainable change
  • Quality of life (social justice, global equity)
  • Uncertainty and precaution
  • Values and perceptions
  • Conflict resolution
  • These are very similar to the concepts for a
    global dimension in the English curriculum

10
Why bother?
  • Reasons for including ESDGC may include
  • for the planet
  • ethical and humanitarian reasons
  • for your grandchildren
  • practical reasons
  • self-interest

11
The situation in Wales
  • The Government of Wales Act 1998 gave the
    National Assembly a statutory duty to promote
    Sustainable Development. Sustainable Development
    is now a central priority that cuts across
    everything the Welsh Assembly Government does.
  • The Welsh Assembly Government is also committed
    to fostering a more outward-looking and
    internationalist Wales and to promoting global
    citizenship.

12
Whats happening in Education in Wales?
  • Assembly Working Group on Global Citizenship and
    Sustainable Development
  • Guidance document published.
  • Inspection Framework includes questions on ESD
    and ECG
  • A recognised element of professional development
    and
  • support framework for teachers (EES) (also
    across England)

13
Where does it fit in to the curriculum?
  • In Wales www.accac.org.uk
  • Personal and Social Education (statutory in
    basic curriculum) all aspects
  • The Curriculum Cymreig
  • Cross curricular themes and guidance books on
  • Global Citizenship and Sustainable development
  • Equal opportunities and diversity
  • Subject guidance
  • RE

All promoted through

15
Other frameworks into which it fits
  • Education Act (Section 351, 1996)
  • Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000
  • Equal opportunities policies
  • Universal Declaration of Human Rights
  • Rights of the Child
  • Agenda 21
  • Sustainable Development policies

16
Relevance of ESDGC in PSE
  • PSE aims to
  • empower pupils to participate in their
    communities as active citizens and to develop a
    global perspective
  • foster and encourage positive attitudes and
    behaviour towards the environment and the
    principles of sustainable development locally,
    nationally and globally.

17
Relevance of ESDGC in the Curriculum Cymreig
  • The Curriculum Cymreig also helps to foster in
    pupils
  • an understanding of an outward-looking and
    international Wales, promoting global citizenship
    and concern for sustainable development.

18
Citizenship and ESDGC in the whole school ethos
  • e.g.
  • Ecoschools
  • International Schools award
  • Healthy schools award
  • Sustainable schools
