Our World, Our Futures

Children’s global citizenship for sustainability using arts and digital practices in schools in the UK and the Maldives

Children taking action for a better future as global citizens.

This new study Our World, Our Futures connects researchers, primary school teachers and children in two countries – the UK and the Maldives – to develop an exciting cross-curricular Environmental Education and Global Citizenship project.

How schools are involved

Education must be transformative and bring shared values to life. It must cultivate an active care for the world and for those with whom we share it.
