Global Citizenship Education and the Rise of the South

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


Deep Dive Workshop

As the global South continues to grow, and middle classes increase, the demand for distinct forms of education has never been higher. Where for some this presents a valuable market opportunity, for others it signifies a chance to make the world a better place. What role do globalising middle classes play as influencers in international dialogue, and how can international schools empower future world leaders with the values and agency to overcome climate change, inequity, and the rich, old, white men, without replacing them with rich, old, international men?

This session will explore our professional identities as educators in a world in flux. How do we manage the advantages and rigours of international teaching and what happens to our ‘blue sky thinking’ when the rubber hits the road? How do we as educators manifest and how is our professional identity moulded in this changing landscape.
