Inspire youth with tales of their peers
Young people are leading movements around the world, influencing their communities, and illuminating issues that have plagued our societies for far too long. Each chapter of How to be a Global Citizen provides information and ideas on how children can have important conversations amongst friends, family, and the wider community to affect change.
Children are inspired by the stories of young leaders such as LGBTQ+ rights activist, Jazz Jennings, and environmentalist, Greta Thunberg. And each of their stories serves to be an example of what it means to be a responsible citizen, how to make the world a better place, and how to care for our societies and environment.
