Our Approach

Move The World believes that focussed Global Citizenship education will build the capacity of young people around the world and empower them to identify and tackle challenges they face at a local level, whilst understanding the effects on a global level.

All our programming strives to create opportunities and experiences for young people to build these key skills. We design and deliver practical and engaging programmes based on Experiential Learning Theory and our Global Citizenship Framework.

Our work provides a structured and coherent ‘entry point’ into civic and social action, within a safe and supportive environment. 

Our Theory of Change

Global Citizenship Framework

Practical social action opportunities integrated into the standard national curriculum is an effective way to enhance student academic development and to provide a pathway to empower students to become responsible global citizens.

There is no one commonly accepted definition of global citizenship, yet global citizenship is understood as a multi-dimensional construct that entails: social responsibility, global competence and global civic engagement, all of which are interrelated. (Ogden, 2012) 

We have adapted this conceptual model to provide a framework upon which our curriculum is designed and programmes are monitored.

 

Experiential Learning Theory

At the heart of all learning is the way we process our experiences, especially our critical reflections on our experiences. Our programmes are designed with experiential learning theory in mind as a main approach to student-centred learning for a sustainable future.

Experiential learning engages students in critical thinking, problem solving and decision making in contexts that are personally relevant to them. This approach to learning also involves making opportunities for debriefing and consolidation of ideas and skills through feedback, reflection and the application of the ideas and skills to new situations.
