As educators, we have an urgent responsibility to be proactive in the way we design teaching and learning experiences. We must shape a better, healthier future with our students, and for us all.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Inspire Citizens systemically enacts UN Sustainable Development Goal 4.7 by co-creating learning experiences with educators and students that shapes a better future. Transformative learning goals build towards action for: Harmony with Nature, Economic Viability and Circularity, Social Cohesion and Justice, Holistic Well-being, Humane Media and Technology, Futures Thinking, Wisdom and Compassion.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

As long-time international educators, we realized that although many schools have missions that are concerned with creating engaged global citizens, education for sustainability, and future-focused skills, rarely do these schools illuminate clear evidence of these ambitious and critical goals.

In discovering this need, we have leveraged our Global Impact Schools partnerships and our Empathy to Impact system to continuously evolve in school implementation programs personalized to the needs and context of each school -- helping co-design teaching and learning, programs, evidence collection and reflection for engaged global citizenship.

Currently, we have thousands of teachers and tens of thousands of students around the world who are involved in student-centered learning experiences designed in concert with our Empathy to Impact approach, Future Now Leadership Program and Futures Media channels -- all resulting in transformative learning and meaningful action in local communities.

How has it been spreading?

One of our major goals as an organization is to continuously provide proof-of-concept through the voices and stories of students and educators worldwide. Leveraging these stories and vignettes, along with the successes of our personalized partnerships, close relationships, and Master Educator Endorsement, has helped Inspire Citizens to become one of the most recognized providers and designers of critical and engaged global citizenship education.

You can learn more through our Empathy to Impact podcast, teaching and learning vignettes, and Futures Media publications found here:

Impact & scalability

HundrED Academy Reviews

This seems to be applicable to any age group, content, curricular or extra-curricular program, and is simple and effective to integrate into curriculum.

It is so important to have discussions with our students that are going to make a difference and this program will help schools to create schoolwide programs around global and intercultural competence.
