This subject introduces students to the key questions around what it means to be a global citizen. While developing a global literacy, students will explore how their own actions contribute to situations of global significance. This awareness will be developed out to show the role that individuals, institutions, non-government organisations and government can play in improving outcomes for other people, communities, nations and the environment. Building on the capabilities approach to human development outlines by Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum, the subject encourages students to think critically about the most effective ways to address key problems facing the world today. At the same time, students will reflect on the importance of being attentive to cultural difference. The subject focuses on increasing a sense of individual agency for becoming a responsible citizen of the world.
