It’s a Great Time to Be a Global Citizen
Sometimes, we find ourselves working on a book at exactly the right time in history.
This is especially true for the forthcoming book Global Citizenship: Engage in the Politics of a Changing World. While it’s always a good time to familiarize yourself with human rights and the struggle some people go through to realize those rights, the year 2020 seems to be an especially important one.
As the pandemic continues to cause disruption to all aspects of life, social issues of inequality and injustice have become even more stark and caused a surge of passion around the Black Lives Matter movement. And meanwhile, we are still grappling with how best to curb climate change, support people in poverty, and maintain steady progress toward gender equality.
It’s a lot, right?
And that’s why this book is so timely. It addresses just about every topic that concerns us today in productive, pro-active ways that get kids excited about being global citizens. Plus, interviews with young people working on the front lines of different causes and activities that promote creative thinking and problem solving make learning interactive and engaging! Take a sneak peak and see what we’re so excited about!
