What is Global Learning?

Global learning is the process of diverse people, collaboratively analyzing and addressing complex problems that transcend borders.

Global learning enables every student to engage with others to find connections among divergent perspectives. These connections are the bedrock upon which we all learn to create innovative, equitable, and sustainable solutions for our interconnected human and natural communities.
