think  global

The escalating levels of social and economic complexity present challenges for education policy- making in today’s globalized world. To tackle with this, learners have to be globally competent; this means that they have to be able to examine local, global and intercultural issues, to understand the perspectives and world views of others, to engage in open and effective interactions with people from different cultures, and to act for collective well-being and sustainable development. This is how PISA 2018 defined GLOBAL COMPETENCE and this is why Global Citizenship Education is needed because it empowers learners of all ages to assume active roles, both locally and globally, in building more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure societies.
