About this book

This volume brings together marginalized perspectives and communities into the mainstream discourse on education for sustainable development and global citizenship. Building on her earlier work, Sharma uses non-western perspectives to  challenge dominant agendas and the underlying Western worldview in the UNESCO led discourse on global citizenship education. Chapters develop the theoretical framework around the three domains of learning within the global citizenship education conceptual dimensions of UNESCO--the cognitive, socio-emotional, and behavioral--and offer practical insights for educators. Value-creating global citizenship education is offered as a pedagogical approach to education for sustainable development and global citizenship in addition to and complementing other approaches mentioned within the recent UNESCO guidelines.

Reviews

“In many of the discussions, policies, and bodies of practice around Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship, value-creating perspectives have all too often been ignored. This excellent volume by Namrata Sharma provides a welcome and much needed response incorporating philosophical debates, review of policies, and examples of practice.” —Douglas Bourn, Professor and Co-Director of the Development Education Research Centre, University College London – Institute of Education, UK

 “In these unprecedentedly difficult times, value-creating global citizenship education embodies an insightful and thought-provoking pedagogical approach for sustainable development, peace, and human rights. Sharma provides a groundbreaking, non-Western perspective to reframe Global Citizenship Education from a values-based angle.” —Massimiliano Tarozzi, Professor and Director, International Research Centre on Global Citizenship Education, University of Bologna, Italy

 “This book is a gift to be shared with anyone who believes in education as the pathway to peace and sustainability. Inclusive and comprehensive—a must read book.”—Wendy Yee Mei Tien, Senior Lecturer and Director for the Centre for Internship Training and Academic enrichment (CITrA), University of Malaya, Malaysia
