This talk will consider a central problem in the emerging discourse/practice of global citizenship education; namely, the rarity of practice coupled with the urgent need for collective action on a beleaguered planet. Drawing on recent studies of GCE practice globally, ways of engaging and theorizing the field in light of simple yet profound questions will be considered. Meaningful and inviting questions such as “Who am I?”, “What matters?” and “What can be done about it?” are deployed in the hopes of expanding the reach and impact of global learning in a time of fragility and fragmentation.
