Think Global is very excited to announce the launch of this year’s Global Educator of the Year Award. This award recognises educators who have gone above and beyond in raising awareness and deepening understanding of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and encouraging young people to take action.
Last year the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) in partnership with Local Trust embarked on their ‘Empowered Communities in the 2020s: shaping the future of community development’ research project. Here we share the findings with our network.
Judy Chaussalet, Head of Development at Think Global attended the Commonwealth Service on the 12 March at Westminster Abbey. Here she shares her experience of the day and reflects on this year's theme 'Towards a Common Future'.
We are currently inviting our partner organisations to take up Think Global membership for 2018-19 (starting on 1 April). Over the next year, we will continue to work actively in partnership with you and others, to strengthen the sector and advocate for global learning, in order to promote global learning in the UK.

As part of our Start the Change project we interviewed students and teachers about these issues. The findings raise interesting questions around ways of supporting teachers to create safe spaces for discussing often difficult and controversial topics.
