Take Action

The fourth area of global competency identified by the Asia Society is taking action. Asia Society's rubric for Global Competency lists four student indicators as students learn how to "translate their ideas and findings into appropriate actions to improve conditions."

To support the first indicator, "Recognize one’s capacity to advocate for and contribute to improvement locally, regionally, or globally," teach your students basic advocacy skills.

To support the second indicator, "Identify opportunities for personal and collaborative action to address situations, events, issues or phenomena in ways which can make a difference," review the Global Goals, also known as the Sustainable Development Goals, and weave them into lesson plans.

 

 

 

 

 

To support the third indicator, "Assess options for action based on evidence and the potential for impact, taking into account varied perspectives and potential consequences for others," review the facts and figures, targets, and resources links for each of the SDGs. 

To support the fourth indicator, "Act creatively and innovatively to contribute to improvement locally, regionally or globally both personally and collaboratively," have students think globally and act locally.
