Global citizenship, Asia-Pacific region, Sustainable development, Curriculum implementation, Educational policy, Teacher role, School systems
Global citizenship education is now an important element of curricula, policy, and practice in many diverse nations around the world. Almost a decade ago, education for global citizenship was described as a target under United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4.7 – to ‘ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development.’ Despite efforts to define and frame global citizenship education (GCED), systems continue to grapple with understanding, enacting, and assessing GCED in ways that reflect changing local and global conditions for students, teachers, and schools. This new study responds to the need for tools and resources to enact, monitor and assess GCED, particularly in primary schools in the Asia-Pacific region. This policy brief provides recommendations for policymakers and development organisations to inform uptake and quality of GCED education and future policies, practices, and investments.
