One World Week is back, and this time we are tackling one of the biggest challenges of them all: Globalisation.
Get ready for a week jam-packed with activities, inspiration and activism. With events for youth workers as well as young people, both online and in person, you’re bound to find something to inspire you!
What takes place in one part of the world can have massive ripples and repercussions in our village, in our towns, across Europe, and the Global South.
But this has come with a cost. A human cost and an environmental cost. We now stand at the crossroads of globalisation. On the one hand, we have suffering, inequality, and devastation, we know that inequality has increased under globalisation. On the other hand, we have human flourishing, new opportunities, and growth.
The decisions we make will determine which path we will take.
How well do young people understand their relationships and connections with global economics, culture, the environment, political forces, and technology that may determine the sustainable future of the planet.
How can we respond? How can we support young people with this global connection? Where do we begin?
