Georgia Amson-Bradshaw, David Broadbent

How can you be a good global citizen? By understanding the world we live in and how we can effect change. This book explores what rules are for, who makes the rules and how governments and power works in society. It helps children understand systems of democracy and how people have the ability to influence the rules of society. It features case studies on civil rights and activities to make campaign videos and organise a debate club. The consultant is Dr Synne Dyvik, Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Sussex University.The I'm a Global Citizen series explores the concept of 'Global Citizenship': recognising that the world we live in is unfair and unequal, but promoting individual and collective action to challenge and change this. Each book has information, fun activities, challenges, case studies and ideas for group and individual action presented with fun illustrations. The books promote the idea that we have power as individuals: each of us can change things, and each of us has choices about how we behave. They encourage children aged 8+ to counter ignorance and intolerance.
