Global Youth Work - Activities for Golbal Citizenship

This book looks at six everyday commodities – water, tobacco, chocolate, textiles, mobile phones and food, as a starting point for exploring global interdependencies. The aim is to show how much we rely on the global trade in goods.

Global trade in a global marketplace means that goods are produced, bought and sold between countries. It therefore creates relationships between producers and consumers worldwide, many of which are grossly unequal and exploitative. The activities give young people the opportunity to be more informed about their lifestyle choices, through raising awareness of the reality of consumerism and how people and the environment are exploited on many levels, locally and globally.

All activities address key Global Citizenship themes as displayed in the matrix. The final chapter suggests ideas for encouraging young people to actively engage wider audiences in the issues they connect with.

The hope is that the book and simultaneous training programme for youth workers will add value to an already innovative and progressive youth work sector in Scotland. A book is however, just a book. Only through the creativity and motivation of professional youth workers will it contribute to empowering young people in Scotland to actively participate in changing and shaping the world.
