We offer the reader issues of Global Commons Review, a new magazine published by the Paulo Freire Institute-UCLA and produced by the UNESCO-UCLA Chair on Global Learning and Global Citizenship Education.
We want to stress the importance of Global Citizenship Education and feature what we believe to be its manifold implications and applications for formal, informal and non-formal education. We believe this will help policy makers; government officials; academics; communities and institutions navigate its ever-shifting tides and currents.
Global Commons Review will offer intellectual and political insights on how to nourish them by identifying best practices and offering sensible, policy-oriented recommendations and programs. We will bring perspectives from different parts of the planet, report on new projects advancing the cause of Global Citizenship Education focus on 'hot' issues that deserve specific attention as well as policies of interest for the future of a global commons.
Global Commons Review will be published online twice a year and once a year in print.
