Global Learning

What is global learning? Global Learning means to learn about world issues important for everybody; it is about learning to understand the way the world works. Children and grownups learn about other cultures by interacting with them directly without barriers, they learn how other peoples live; they share experiences and knowledge in order to make a better world. Interaction with other countries gives the groups an insight into the culture, economy, history, geography and climate of a foreign country; they learn for instance the correlation between actions taken in one country and their consequences in another. Political decisions in one country can lead to war in other countries, while overfishing in one country may cause famine in another and so on.(read also Mobile Project with Brazil)
