Philosophy for Global Citizenship (P4GC)

Philosophy for Children has been used successfully in global citizenship education in the UK for the last 20 years and is recommended in the Cambridge Primary Review Trust's report Sustainability and Global Understanding (2015-16):

'Many global learning resources share similar pedagogical approaches that involve active participation and discussion. Philosophy for Children (P4C), for example, uses a dialogical approach to learning and its popular resources include materials focused on global issues, looking at issues from different viewpoints and encouraging critical thinking.'

SAPERE P4C works in partnership with a number of the UK's Development Education Centres:

We are grateful to ActionAid for their contributions on a number of topics, including drought, climate change, food sustainability, inequality and more. We've also worked with ActionAid to create resources on tax and fairness, which you can find on their websiteYou can also download Mary Young's 12 Key Concepts of Global Citizenship with suggested stimuli for enquiry. 

SAPERE P4C partners with Oxfam to provide guidance on using P4C. You can download the guide and P4C resources. P4C is also recommended in Oxfam’s Teaching Controversial Issues guide for teachers.
