Report from the West Midlands Commission on Global Citizenship ~ exploring identity, democracy and participation in a global context
The Commission has had many debates, it also provided a focus for a wide range of work engaging teachers and other educationalists in thinking about citizenship and about future strategy. This report has been compiled to share some of that work. The process has been about making connections, about engaging with major issues and about beginning to grapple with what this new region ~ the West Midlands ~ might be. As one member put it, it is about "breaking out of our boxes". Another major reason for producing this report is to contribute to debates about establishing a West Midlands Coalition to take this work further. The section ‘ways forward’ features the need for new research, curriculum innovation and the setting up of such a coalition.
