The Generation Global programme has been running since 2009.
Our model has been tried and tested in partnership with seven governments and our resources are recognized as best practice by the UK Department for Education, UNESCO, the Brookings Institute, and the National Council for Social Studies.
This learning journey for young people starts with the awareness that intercultural communication and dialogue exist, and through this knowledge, young people can continue to grow and practise the skills and attitudes that are required for efficacy.
Layers of Impact:
- Awareness: Learners are knowledgable about what
dialogue is and why it is important to
create peaceful and inclusive societies.
- Practice: Learners understand and practise the
core skills of dialogue to develop
- Transformation: Young people use dialogue as a transferable skill to actively participate in the world as global citizens.
- As a teacher, I see a lot of positive changes in my students' behaviour. They have become more tolerant toward each other and they look at the world around them more positively. They have developed a great degree of empathy.
- When I joined Generation Global, I lacked self-confidence but soon I witnessed a remarkable change in my personality. Coming across people with different thoughts, values, religions, languages, and cultures is bound to broaden your mind and make you see the world with an entirely new vision.
- Deliberately teaching students the skills to dialogue will help create a strong constituency that reaches out to persons of different cultures and faiths. I endorse this free resource for use in the Philippines as it can help create a culture of understanding.
- After a 2 day workshop teachers have reported the enthusiastic engagement of their students in Essentials of Dialogue and after their first video conference, reported their students to be highly excited by the experience.
