Nearly four out of five people think educating young people about global issues is important for overcoming worldwide poverty, according to research by Oxfam.
The charity's new Education for Global Citizenship: A Guide for Schools reveals that of the 1,000 surveyed, 89 per cent support a global approach to teaching.
The key issues identified for young people to learn about are the environment, peace and conflict, education about different countries and cultures, human rights and responsibilities, and global poverty.
Education for Global Citizenship (covering early years to Standard grade) is a 12-page booklet with articles on curriculum, class activities and case studies. For free copies contact Oxfam, tel 0870 333 2700 or email email@example.com
