Many young people across the world grow up with 'local lives', rarely coming into contact with people from outside their identity groups. When young people learn through a global lens it widens their horizons and helps them to grow as individuals.
Working together cultivates a sense of belonging and helps young people to open up to new ideas, accept new norms and embrace new ways of seeing the world. This series of thought provoking Global Thinking Talks and Workshops support PSHE and SMSC learning objectives and are a great introduction or deepening to the ThoughtBox curriculum.
What will pupils learn?
- To open the box on global issues and develop interest in their own learning and responsibilities as global citizens
- To use creativity, teamwork and imagination to solve challenges and make connections with their community
- To walk in the shoes of others, think critically and explore individual and collective values
- To feel confident expressing opinions and exploring difficult questions
