PAGE BC
British Columbia Teachers for Peace and Global Education...

Is one of 32 Provincial Specialist Associations (PSAs) of the British Columbia Teachers' Federation. PSAs are channels for members to exchange ideas on research, teaching strategies, curriculum development, and other shared interests.

“Global Education is education that opens people’s eyes and minds to the realities of the world, and awakens them to bring about a world of greater  justice, equity and human rights for all.

Global Education is understood to encompass Development Education, Human Rights Education, Education for Sustainability, Education for Peace and Conflict Prevention and Inter-cultural Education; being the global dimensions of Education for Citizenship.”

The Maastricht Global Education Declaration, 2002


We at PAGE BC believe that Global Education ...
Is a philosophy of living and a methodology that seeks to link issues of peace, human rights, environment, and equitable, sustainable development to our personal and professional lives. It also seeks to find and implement ways of infusing these interconnected issues into our existing curricula and institutions by coming to understand the natural and human engineered systems in which they exist.

Peace & Global Educators teach for citizens of the world who demonstrate humanitarian concern & are cognizant of living in a socially responsible manner.
