Help to learn the World – a brief from Golden Drum, DDB and Global Development.
Imagine a future where young people are more conscious about the increasingly complex relationships of common social, ecological, political and economic issues so they can actively shape their future in the present.
Inspire the countries’ leaders, the businesses and its leaders as well as young talents and future leaders to recognize the role of global education in affecting change.
It is important to inform, inspire and enable young people to participate in discussions about the world they want to see and live in.
Influence the current thinking about Global Education. We live and interact in increasingly globalized world and interconnected society, and we need to understand increasingly complex relationships of common social, ecological, political and economic issues, so as to derive new ways of thinking and acting for better world.
Global Development Education is education that opens people’s eyes and minds to the realities of the globalized world and awakens them to bring about a world of greater justice, equity and human rights for all.
It is understood to encompass development education, human rights education, and education for sustainability, education for peace and conflict prevention and intercultural education. It is the global dimension of education for citizenship (from Beat the Drum for Change 2014 Off Drum Competition) which educates youth and all citizens about opportunities to find solutions to the global challenges we are all facing today. These global challenges are summarized in the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals endorsed by over 180 countries in 2000 which will come to an end in 2015 (1. eradicate poverty and hunger, 2. achieve universal education, 3. promote gender equality, 4. reduce child and 5. maternal mortality, 6. combat HIV/AIDS, 7. ensure environmental sustainability and 8. develop global partnerships). In 2015, the United Nations will endorse the new Sustainable Development Goals, a major global effort today in by all countries to end poverty and ensure lasting prosperity for all citizens.
