Citizenship, Human Rights and the Environment

This module examines ideas and case studies about global justice and education, through human rights, citizenship and environment.

  • How can we develop ‘global citizens’, who will also be able to survive democratically in a very uncertain globalising world?
  • How can human rights be used as a basis for developing education and policy in schools?
  • How can positive human survival be helped through educating about the environment?

The teaching of these issues can be highly controversial and may require particular sorts of teaching approaches and different assessment criteria in schools.  Young people participate in researching the world, and contribute to achieving change.
