Yesterday, I went to the launch of the Teach Global Ambassadors programme at the One World Centre in Dundee.

The One World Centre in
Princes Street is an education centre for global and environmental issues.

In their shop front premises one can access inspirational people and a wide range of resources to promote learning and understanding about these issues.

They have a very positive record of working with Dundee schools and communities.

The Teach Global Ambassadors Programme aims to increase young people’s awareness and critical understanding of our interdependent world, and their role, responsibility and lifestyles in relation to a globalised society.

It will involve working with secondary teachers in Scotland and Lithuania.

In the first phase of the programme this will involve Secondary Schools in two local council areas.

I hope that Dundee will be one of these Councils.

This was an informative and positive event.
