Science and Global Citizenship

KS2: ages 7-11KS3: ages 11-14PDF

Teaching science from a global citizenship perspective increases young people’s enjoyment and deepens their understanding of science by helping them to apply it to real-life contexts. This free short guide from Oxfam, produced in partnership with the Association for Science Education, explains the benefits of a global citizenship approach to science and has practical ideas for implementing it in topics such as water, energy and ecosystems.

It helps students to consider vital questions about global challenges such as:

  • How can science help to provide nutritious food for all and ensure a plentiful supply of clean water?
  • What contribution can science make towards tackling the causes and effects of disease?
  • How can science help to address the challenges of climate change?
  • What role might science play in meeting the ever-increasing demand for raw materials as populations increase and expectations of living standards rise?
