  • I’m suggesting, along with Oxfam, that awareness – knowledge- is not enough.We need to be developing a capacity to care.In part we can do this by encouraging the development of empathy, for instance through fictional literature. But it also needs to be applied to real life situations.And the purpose of this is to develop caring about.Not enough in itself – needs to have some practical implications – some manifestations.It needs to be reflected in action.And that is the purpose of developing the awareness.Of course this is not a simple linear model, but a self-reinforcing spiral.
  • After this introduction to set the stage, let’s get to some practicalities.I’m looking at ways in which schools can work with students to enable them to develop a better, more grounded, better informed, more ethical sense of place and position within our global world. I’m suggesting that, whatever your titles or the Awards you’re working towards, it is responsible global citizens that you should be working to develop. And I reckon this is a pretty important and central part of our work.So the first suggestion is giving it this sort of recognition within the school.
