How can we deal with immigration? What is meant by effective citizenship? How can we implement the Big Society and reduce cultural tensions? This book offers a new form of citizenship education based on a Living Global Citizenship approach that allows participants to demonstrate values such as cultural empathy. This alternative pedagogy for the delivery of effective citizenship education within any cultural setting creates a new meaning for the term 'cultural education'. Living Global Citizenship projects allow participants from different communities to take ownership of their priorities for development and the long-term transformation of their own communities. They provide a way of delivering authentic citizenship education through an international educational partnership that enables participants to critically assess their values and to develop meaningful relationships from which new understandings emerge to challenge the predominant view of development.
