How to Raise a Global Citizen

How to Raise a Global Citizen

The future is bright because of our children. They have the energy, capacity, and passion to create and nurture a global culture in which inclusion, acceptance, respect, and participation are the core values that underpin a human being's every interaction--with each person, creature, and living thing on the planet. And, as parents and caregivers, our job is to help our children take their first steps along that path. Raising truly globally minded and socially conscious children happens at home and in the community--no passport required. Children can be inspired, equipped, and mobilized to make a difference in the world. Not only do children's positive actions help others; research shows it also helps them become happier, more successful adults. By encouraging values such as responsible and kind use of social media, respect, open mindedness, empathy, and community, parents can help shape a new generation of emotionally intelligent, outward-looking, politically ethical world citizens. Relevant to parents of children of all ages, the ebook gives practical advice on how to talk to your children, the vocabulary to use, and activities and projects you can undertake with your children, from planting a tree to keeping a gratitude diary to cooking themed cuisines. And you'll find out how to model global citizenship through your own day-to-day actions.
