Today it is not uncommon for people to consider themselves 'global citizens' - all of us residents in a global village, all of us increasingly connected. What are our opportunities and responsibilities as global citizens? How can any of us make a difference in our world, and what kind of difference should we make? Given the economic, environmental, technological and political complexities of the 21st century, there are no simple and straightforward answers to these questions. In this intensive unit we challenge participants to develop creative thinking skills, applying them directly to ethical dilemmas posed by the concept and reality of global citizenship.
