Enabling students to interact with different global perspectives, experiences, cultures and apply knowledge and skills to take action and solve problems is an essential step in building capabilities to be active and informed global citizens.
This forum assists students to explore with their peers from across the State and the Asia-Pacific region what it means to be a global citizen, what skills, knowledge and understandings and capabilities are needed and how we can take action on a global issue to have a local impact.
Throughout the forum they will hear from experts and guest speakers, hear from their peers across the Asia-Pacific, critically examine global citizenship and discuss with their peers issues facing local communities in the current global context.
These activities will culminate in a final presentation where students will create a short presentation to each other to address a chosen local issues.
Prior to the forum, teachers and students are provided with briefings and a comprehensive information pack with all activities and learning materials.
