Why is Global Competence Important?
Young people need global competence, a 21st century capacity that includes knowledge about diverse cultures around the world, empathetic and collaborative interpersonal skills, and respectful, open-minded attitudes shaped by learning and experience.
Most kids in the United States grow up not knowing about the rest of the world – from basic geography to a deeper understanding or even curiosity about people who live in different places or have different cultural backgrounds.
