A GLOBAL EDUCATION PROJECT
InSolidarity is an international education project that combines education, travel, cultural exchange to build leadership (personal and social) and civic engagement (local and global). By facilitating and designing curriculum InSolidarity works to make Global Education relevant and accessible in every community.
- Culture, cost and lack of access make Global Education inaccessible to many communities. This is a great disservice.
- Global Education is necessary to live in a global world, an ever increasingly interconnected. It develops the tools needed to address 21st century problems.
- Global Education and International travel have the power to transform and engage people in ways that traditional education cannot.
- Combining Global Education and Popular Education can build personally and socially responsible individuals across the world.
- Combining Global Education and Popular Education can change the world.
