Linking the global and the local

Short video introducing the activity.
Given that the links between the ‘Global’ and the ‘Local’ are a key concern in Global Education, it’s useful to give some thought at this point to what you think this might mean in your own context. To start this discussion, please share a photo or an image, which you think illustrates the link between the ‘Global’ and the ‘Local’ in your own context. This is sometimes referred to using the term ‘Globalisation’. These links and their impacts might be positive or negative or a bit of both. Images might include, for instance, things related to travel, language, food, education, conservation, or media, among many others.
Along with your chosen image, please include a short reflection, 150 words or less, about why you chose this image and how you think it illustrates a link between the global and the local. You can post your thoughts and your images in the Padlet listed below.

Please watch the video instructions above and then follow this link to our Padlet space, where you can post your ideas and reflections for this activity.
