‘Global issues’ are issues that transcend national boundaries, and which demand a collective, comprehensive human response at both an international and local level. They include (but by no means exhaustively) issues such as: human rights, animal rights, the climate crisis, food insecurity, equality, housing, conflict resolution, prejudice and discrimination, rampant consumerism, working conditions, over-population, sustainable development, migration, physical- and mental- health and wellbeing. We hope the links to the resources below will provide you with inspiration, as well as concrete, practical tools and ideas for effectively integrated such issues into your teaching, in-so-doing improving your own, your colleagues’ and your students’ critical literacy.

We created a bank of resources you can use to bring global issues into your classroom.
