Praise for Global Citizenship

Stephen Wooten, PhD, Associate Professor, Global Studies, Director, Food Studies Program, University of Oregon
“As a university-level professor of global ethics I am heartened to know that a book like this exists for middle and high schoolers. The author presents complex issues and concerns in an erudite yet approachable manner. The text invites students in and encourages them to recognize their agency in helping to create change in the world. As a parent of two teens, I would be delighted to have them engaging in this text with their teachers.”

Dr. Julia Morris, Assistant Professor, Department of International Studies, University of North Carolina, Wilmington
“In the face of worldwide challenges, now more than ever is the time for global solidarity. Global Citizenship takes up this call with the generation leading tomorrow’s change. It will inspire young people to be at the forefront of change as they consider what it means to be a global citizen in our increasingly interconnected world.”
