Global Community for Practicing Dialogue Skills

On the Generation Global platform, students can develop the skills and experience to flourish in an interconnected and complex world. Generation Global is designed for 12- to 17-year-olds and is active in more than 20 countries from around the world. Students learn and practice the skills of dialogue in the classroom before engaging in dialogue through videoconferences or online. The videoconferences connect classrooms across the world, allowing students to explore, articulate, and develop their own views, while encountering and considering the views of others. The online community encourages dialogue among students, who work in small groups with other students from around the world, sharing their views and engaging in dialogue on prearranged topics. The community is a safe space, with a trained facilitator to manage the flow of the discussion. Working with specialists, Generation Global has developed flexible teaching modules that can be incorporated into existing curricula and that suit a range of educational systems. The classroom activities help students to approach diversity in an open-minded way and to learn the skills of dialogue. There is no charge or cost involved with the program.
