Welcome to Global Footprints
The challenges facing the world involve all of us wherever we live. In our increasingly globalised world the earth’s resources and wealth are not shared sustainably or justly. Growing poverty and reduced access to the basic essentials of life is the daily reality for many people on the planet, but this does not have to be the future, we can all do something to reduce global inequality and the effects of climate change.
Global Footprints is for teachers and young people to explore global and social issues and increases students' understanding of the connection between their lives and the lives of others around the world, as well as emphasising the need to work together to protect the planet.
