Global Citizenship Education

Global Citizenship Education

Global Citizenship Education (GCE) is an educational process aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of the rapidly changing, interdependent and unequal world in which we live. By challenging stereotypes and encouraging independent thinking, GCE helps students critically explore the root causes of global justice issues and how they interlink with our everyday lives.

GCE inspires global solidarity by supporting people to fully realise their rights, responsibilities and potential as global citizens in order to take meaningful action for a just and sustainable world.

Global Citizenship Education:

  • Is about teaching and learning through a global justice lens
  • Allows students to explore the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to become global citizens
  • Cultivates the key skills at Junior and Senior Cycle
  • Facilitates students to take action for a more just and sustainable world
