Is Another World Possible? The Global Citizenship program will explore global forces and local responses through the lenses of citizenship and collective intelligence. Students will develop a variety of individual citizenship skills. They will also work in teams over the three quarters to explore issues and ideas, characterize knowledge, and develop communication, leadership and computer skills. In addition to increasing theoretical understanding of global citizenship, students will develop relationships with organizations engaged in social change.
Credit will be awarded in social and computer studies.
In this program, we will consider the forces that are acting upon the world and how people can participate in shaping the future. We will explore meanings of citizenship, both old and new, and along the way we will develop and improve a wide array of citizenship skills ranging from public speaking to new media.
