Global Voices and Global Visions : Education for Excellence, Understanding, Peace and Sustainability Hardback
We are in a state of tremendous global unrest with wars, acts of terrorism, genocide, epidemics and untold natural disasters.
In some cases students are at risk as a result of safety concerns within their schools, from extremist views that discriminate against obtaining education, from societal issues that increase anxiety and depression, and even in specific cases from corruption in government that prevent students from having access to schooling. It is through globally engaged education that we can learn of one another, attain academic excellence, improve international relationships, triumph over atrocities, and discover new potentials.
A synergistic globally engaged education will allow for the working together collaboratively, cooperatively and innovatively, while still respecting diversity and humane ideologies. Through cutting edge interdisciplinary research from psychology, neuroscience, education, leaps in the technological areas, and listening closely to the global voices we can indeed ascertain understanding, peace and sustainability.
