Global Citizen 3: The Story You Are Shaping

Lesson created by Tobye Ertelt using

Video from United Nations YouTube Channel

Let’s Begin…

In Global Citizen Parts 1 and 2, we looked at what defines a global citizen and what skills we need to become a citizen. In this lesson, we are going to focus on acting. We want to start looking for areas of passion/interest that we want to connect with.

Create and share a new lesson based on this one.
