Mrs. Rakesh Muniraju – P Director – BIGI
The advent of technology and communication advancements have made global citizenship education a need rather than a luxury—and more feasible than ever before.
While basic skill development and workforce preparation skills are important in the education system, a paradigm shift must take place recognising that in order to be truly globally competitive, we must be globally competent. Educating young people to become global citizens will allow them to learn about the interdependence of the world’s systems, believe that solutions to global challenges are attainable, and feel morally compelled to confront global injustices and take responsible action to promote a just, peaceful and sustainable world. While at first glance a focus on global citizenship may seem secondary in a system where basic literacy remains a challenge for many, these skills are vital. If we truly aspire to have a world-class education system, we must engage with the world. The challenges that face the world today—from global poverty and climate change to financial systems and conflict—require globally-minded solutions. Global competency skills are necessary so that young people can invent a future that appropriately addresses global challenges.
We aim to make BIGIs as the “Education HUB,” we will reinvent our notion of the necessary skills to succeed in the 21st century, which go beyond reading, writing, and math to include global citizenship and competency.
