“The earth is but one country and Mankind its citizens.”
— Baha'u'llah
The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the belief that no one country alone can solve the challenges our planet faces. Only when nations come together can we solve some of the gravest and deadliest challenges facing our shared humanity. Shaping an education that can provide the necessary tools for the world’s 1.8 billion young people to adapt and thrive in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world is a priority for caring and philanthropic education leaders like you. Schools have the power and potential to create an environment that also promotes global identity and solidarity. In this context, the 8th Issue of the Transforming Education Newsletter presents to you Dr. Iva Katzarska-Miller & Dr. Stephen Reysen’s research from the .ed Magazine — a quarterly curated issue-based digital magazine for educators. 
Read this featured article of the week to gain insights into how your efforts and actions impact young people’s perception and identification of global citizenship and the downstream benefits. Learn from Dr. Iva Katzarska-Miller and Dr. Stephen Reysen how you can use their research and knowledge to shape an effective global citizenship education.
Also, out the 🗓  events, our 💫  spotlight, along with the 🗞news and  from the Global Citizenship Foundation below.
