The Get up and goals! project proposes to the students global learning and service learning activities.
Global learning activities aim to develop knowledge and understanding of the world, the ability to grasp global interconnections, to look at it from a plurality of points of view, to connect local facts and mechanisms with global facts and mechanisms, to grasp the relationship between economic, political, social, environmental, cultural and historical dimensions, overcoming the boundaries of individual disciplines.
To achieve these objectives, the project proposes to the classes both a set of Teaching and learning units on four major themes of the present, and a global geo-history textbook that proposes an interconnected vision of world history, free from nationalism and Eurocentrism.
Service learning activities aim to translate the knowledge and skills acquired by students into behaviours aimed at bringing the great themes of the present into the communities in which they live. For this the project Get up and goals! proposes to the students the realization of actions of sensitization towards the local communities, inviting them to think about forms of involvement of great impact (for example Flash mob, street theater ...) also resorting to the support of associations and specialized agencies.
