Read Globally, Act Locally (A GLP Initiative)
April 19th-May 7th
Every April/May, the Global Literacy Project mobilizes students, teachers and parents to read stories from around the world. They’re then encouraged to use these stories as a way to reflect upon how actions in their local community can lead to positive change at the global level. “Read Globally, Act Locally” global citizenship commendations recognize outstanding students who advocate for the UN’s “Education for All” goals by making presentations to community leaders.
These activities often utilize stories written by students and volunteers from our various participating clusters. We encourage schools to invite local political representatives to see and hear about how literacy has the power to connect people from around the planet!
