Science: The Global Dimension

Published by DEA in partnership with the Association for Science Education, this booklet has been written to enable teachers and advisors to consider the value of addressing the global dimension in science education. The global dimension to science can include:

  • exploring and debating the role of science and scientists in a global context
  • incorporating concepts of global citizenship and sustainable development
  • raising awareness of human rights, poverty and injustice
  • communicating the idea of mutual interdependence.

This guidance aims to show how the global dimension in schools can contribute to a broad, balanced and enriched curriculum through examples of activities, case studies and resources.
