Namrata Sharma | Finding the linkages between Global Citizenship Education, Education for Sustainable Development and Value Creating Education
Play • 58 min

In this episode, Namrata Sharma discusses the existing connections between Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCE). She talks about her work examining the underlying paradigms and perspectives of GCE and ESD, and how she situates her studies within the wide-ranging scholarship that challenges the overall western-view of GCE. She also mentions the books that she has written where she proposes value-creating GCE as a pedagogical approach that she has developed from a study of less widely known perspectives, especially focusing on important contributions that come from eastern thinkers. Sharma illustrates these ideas with the example of Soka University, an institution which she believes successfully fosters global citizens. Finally, she makes connections between GCE and The Earth Charter, and how this document is helpful and complimentary to creating global citizens through ESD.
