The world has become increasingly divided.
Nations and societies that previously encouraged cooperation are moving toward greater isolation precisely at a time when our shared challenges and opportunities require collaboration and diversity. Although Global citizenship education focusing on cultural diversity and tolerance are reported as a mandatory part of curricula in 68% of countries today, there is a question about whether this translates into practice in classrooms and out-of-school spaces. However, various studies show that Gen Z (people ages 15 to 25) are very global in their thinking and interactions, carry a sense of responsibility, and expect diversity. Yet, educational inequality and low enrollment rates are shown to result in higher risks of conflict and wars.
