Global citizenship for children podcast published

The Development Education Research Centre has just published a new podcast called ‘How We can Engage Children in Learning About Global Development Matters'.

The podcast was recorded in partnership with the London International Development Centre and is available at:

The discussion looks at development education in schools and how to engage children in global development issues.

Participants Dr Doug Bourn, director of UCL’s Development Education Research Centre and SOAS Senior Fellow Dr Ben Dix, founder of the charity PositiveNegatives discuss the concept of global citizenship, why teaching children about sustainable development and humanitarianism is important and how to educate children on issues such as conflict, migration, climate change and poverty.

PositiveNegatives is currently piloting a new education programme called WhyComics?, which aims to communicate complex humanitarian issues to schoolchildren through educational comics.
