We help people to understand and act on global issues. We believe in a world that is just and sustainable for everyone. Our mission is to enable people to understand and think critically about global issues, motivating and encouraging us all to act for a more just and sustainable world.
Each month we are shining a spotlight on the work of one of our member organisations.
This month’s spotlight is on The Geographical Association (GA), the leading subject association for teachers of geography.
The GA support teachers’ professional needs through their journals, publications, training courses, Annual Conference, Quality Marks, teaching resources, social media activity and a variety of local and national network activities. They have several thousand members including primary and secondary teachers, through to academics and businesses. If you or your organisation is interested in becoming a member you can join the GA here.
Read the GA’s blog on the importance of critical thinking.

“Think Global was one of the first charities I engaged with when I entered Parliament. With a Crossbench group of peers I took part in the “Live below the Line” challenge to highlight that many live on less than £1 a day. This highlights the practical approach that Think Global brings to their work, and which as a teacher I know makes issues come alive for pupils learning about global issues.”
“It only makes sense to nurture our pupils as global citizens in the multi-cultural metropolis that is London, particularly as they are growing up in an increasingly globalised world. These are the generations that are in need of the knowledge and skills to navigate their way towards a more just and sustainable way of living for all.”
“One way in which UK teachers have been fortunate is through the additional support that they can receive from outside global education organisations, NGOs and programmes like the GLP. This support manifests itself as materials and websites, but often teachers and schools most appreciate the support they receive in person through global learning advisors, CPD providers and outside speakers.”
“Our individual experiences of working with each other and Think Global have expanded both our knowledge and our ways of navigating global issues. We feel that we are now one step closer to becoming global active citizens.”
