developping a sense of national belonging and patriotism for african youth

How and why should we urgently instill patriotism to every African children?

If the present generation doesn’t have a strong affection for Africa, then we will all, soon enough be doomed. As we become more globalized, our children are more exposed and likely to live and work in different countries in the world, and with this arises the question of whether or not their patriotism to their motherland will survive. Do the present generation have the same passion for the continent as the older generation did? So how can we promote and sustain the love for the country into a child?

What is Global Citizenship Education ?

With Globalization, our actions are no more having just a national or regional impact. We are now living in a global village where we have responsibilities to everyone. We must be belonging to a broader community and common humanity. GCE develops that global consciousness and competencies that will enable us to understand and resolve global issues in our sociocultural, environmental and economic environment. The great aim of education is not knowledge but action, then GCE allows learners to act effectively and responsibly at local, national and global levels for a more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable world.
