Wellbeing is contingent on a sense of self-efficacy (a person’s belief that their effort and actions can bring about desired results) and on social capital (“the web of cooperative relationships between citizens that facilitate resolution of collective action problems” ).
This workshop explored the impact on wellbeing of enabling pupils’ sense of self-efficacy and their understanding of global ‘interconnectedness’ within the context of a global citizenship project ‘Global Literacy for a Fairer World’. This multi-national project, funded by the European Commission and led in the UK by Cumbria Development Education Centre (CDEC), engages teachers and pupils aged 7-11 in the UK, Czech Republic, Poland and Ghana, in learning about international development themes of poverty, inequality, and interdependence, and supports them to take real and relevant action in their own communities which will address global inequality. Through exploring global citizenship, pupils’ self esteem and self-efficacy will grow as they understand the impact that their actions can take, both locally and globally.
CDEC is a registered charity that inspires young people and their teachers to engage with global issues, to take responsibility – individually and together – for the world in which they live, and to contribute towards a fair and sustainable world.
