Global Citizenship Education thru’ Critical Social Inquiry: The RSS ALP framework

'Global citizenship education aims to be transformative, building the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that learners need to be able to contribute to a more inclusive, just and peaceful world.'

-"UNESCO Global Citizenship Education: Topics and Learning Objectives"

'The purpose of social inquiry is to create knowledge (informational) and citizenship (transformational) outcomes. The aim of this social inquiry was to enable students to develop skills in social-inquiry research and to develop deeper understanding about their local community (with a focus on the concepts of identity, belonging, place, and change).'

-"What is Social Inquiry?’ by Bronwyn E Wood"
