Raising global citizens starts in the home and understanding of other cultures and traditions is becoming more important than ever, especially in the light of recent events in Paris, Brussels, Ankara, Istanbul and many other places. The good news is that it is as easy as it is crucial to incorporate a global mindset into the activities you’re probably already engaging in with your children, for example cooking, reading, and watching movies.
That’s why we’re so happy to present the Raising Global Citizens at Home Online Summit from April 11th – 17th, 2016. It will feature many of our members, who will share their expertise on the most important aspects of raising global citizens, from the comforts of your home.
I have the biggest pleasure to be a co-host of this event, together with Lana of Smart Tinker and Leanna of All Done Monkey.
Here’s what we will cover:
Day 1: Why is it important to raise global citizens?
Day 2: How TRAVEL supports global citizenship
Day 3: How FOOD connects us in a global society
Day 4: How ARTS and CRAFTS promote global citizens
Day 5: How PLAY encourage global citizenship
Day 6: The Importance of MEDIA, APPS AND BOOKS
Day 7: The role of LANGUAGE in raising global citizens
The week-long summit will take place online and every day from April 11th – 17th, 2016. Each day it will feature 3 short but informative videos on the topic of the day. Our speakers are writers, educators and parents of global citizens themselves and in this video series, they will share what they know (and that’s a lot)!
Through the summit, you will be able to gain new insights into raising your children with a global mindset, while learning something new and having fun as well. You will also receive a workbook to help you write down your ideas and lessons learned from the summit, an e-book containing the most important information from summit as well as our MKB 20 page e-book with our best advice, tips and inspiration.
Did we mention that it’s entirely for FREE?
