As part of our strategic plan, TFS is progressively incorporating UNESCO’s program of global citizenship education.
To UNESCO, global citizenship refers to a sense of belonging to a broader community and common humanity. It emphasizes political, economic, social and cultural interdependency and interconnectedness between the local, the national and the global.
This approach to learning meshes well with the goals of the IB programs, and helps students to analyze, think creatively, and gain personal and social responsibility. With these skills, they can thoughtfully approach and delve into themes around issues such as migrations, security, international governance, natural resources and globalization.
The concept of global citizenship is multi-faceted, with real-world applications, and is integral to the education at TFS.
