How do we teach our children to be compassionate and create a world they want to live in? By teaching global citizenship. Elena Sonnino, mother, blogger, former educator, and social good champion, encouraged tweens to use their voices to be global citizens and champion social good through her Moms+Tweens+Social Good event recently held in Washington, D.C. While the event created conversation about topics like what it means to be a change agent, ways to use your voice for good, advocating for a cause, and how to find causes or campaigns that match your passion, it also conveyed the message that everyone can be a change agent. Attendees left inspired after hearing from tweens who had created change in their own communities and been part of fundraising teams to raise money for causes they were passionate about.
Along with some inspirational quotes from the day, here are seven helpful resources for teaching global citizenship to kids.
