In recent years, there has been a growing interest in global citizenship as a concept and its implication for education. It is partly because of the ongoing process of globalisation, and people in different places becoming more interdependent and interconnected, that promotion of global citizenship education is seen as a way of addressing some of the global issues we face today, such as environmental issues, social justice, poverty, and human rights. What does ‘global citizenship’ mean? Is there a universal definition for it? How do we approach it in education? What are the challenges of introducing it in education? In this chapter, we explore how global citizenship is conceptualised and how it has evolved over time; the challenges of facilitating global citizenship education; and different approaches to global citizenship education at different educational stages.
