Abstract

Global citizenship education has an increasingly important role to play in facing today's global challenges, especially in the context of multicultural experiences. This article aims to explore various approaches that can be taken by educational units in developing global citizenship education that focuses on multicultural experiences. Through a literature review, this study identified approaches that could be applied in educational units, such as intercultural teaching, project-based learning, active participation in local and global communities, and the use of information and communication technology. These approaches are designed to enable students to develop a deep understanding of cultural diversity, universal values, human rights, equality, and social justice. In addition, these approaches also encourage the development of intercultural skills, critical thinking skills, empathy, cooperation, and sensitivity to global issues. Application of these approaches in education units will help create an inclusive learning environment, enrich the student experience, and prepare them to contribute as aware, responsible and empathetic global citizens. In an increasingly global connected context, these approaches offer broad insights and solutions that can be applied by education units to develop global citizenship education that promotes multicultural experiences.
