Dating back to the 1970’s, the history of ‘global learning’ uses education to prepare people with the skills and capabilities they need to help make the world a better and sustainable place.

Most of us prefer to consume local news on commonly known websites and television channels and we tend to treat our daily news as if there isn’t any other country in the world aside from our own. It’s an understandable and natural state of mind since we most importantly care about what happens in our local communities, however, it’s also important to follow what is happening in other parts of the world. Never before have we had such a dire need to understand the meaning of today’s world news and events.
