Generation Global is a pioneering global education programme for 12- to 17-year-olds, providing them with the skills and experience they need to navigate difference in a peaceful way. By providing global learning and dialogue opportunities, the programme helps young people to be resolute in the face of narratives that may feed the development of extremist ideologies.

Devised by an international group of educational experts, advisers and religious leaders, the programme provides opportunities for students to put critical thinking skills into practice through facilitated dialogue. Students learn about one another and explore the roots of openness and diversity in their own cultural and religious traditions.

 

 

Generation Global has three core activities:

1.  Students work through the Essentials of Dialogue resources and then put the knowledge, skills and competencies they have developed into practice through dialogue with their peers across the world, using either online tools or facilitated videoconferences.

 

2.  The facilitated videoconferences enable students across the world to speak to each other, including in conflict zones. Trained facilitators manage the interaction, providing support and appropriate challenge, and encouraging the use and development of the four key skills of dialogue: insight, explaining, questioning and reflecting.

 

3.    The moderated online community allows students to engage in digital dialogue. This unique platform enables young people to connect safely with peers around the world, while providing teachers with tools to effectively support students’ development. Students are encouraged to comment on each other's work, referring to the four key skills of dialogue.
