Generation Global is the Tony Blair Institute’s education programme for young people ages 13 to 17 that equips them with the knowledge of global issues, life skills, and attitudes of open-mindedness to become active and engaged global citizens. We provide live dialogue sessions and interactive online modules on global topics for learners and educational materials for teachers.
Ten million young people reach working age each month. Yet, the education they receive does not equip them to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world.
Together we can help young people be more resilient in the face of global challenges, by making education systems more inclusive and better equipped to support students’ development into active and open-minded citizens. Generation Global helps young people find their voice in an increasingly interconnected world. We offer:
- Free, flexible teaching resources, skill building activities, and high-quality training and support for teachers on a range of global issues.
- Facilitated videoconferences, which are a unique opportunity for young people to engage in dialogue on complex contemporary issues, improve communication skills, boost self-confidence, and develop critical thinking. This is synchronous video-based dialogue, it takes place at the same time, giving direct communication with their global peers.
- The Ultimate Dialogue Adventure: An interactive online platform that leads young people through a game to learn the skills of dialogue and participate in forums focused on a variety of global topics and issues.
Our work has reached over 40 countries, where we have trained more than 15,000 teachers to empower more than half a million young people to become active global citizens. We have facilitated more than 5,000 video conferences, connecting young people from different parts of the world in a safe space for dialogue.
