The Teaching Global Issues Project, delivered with funding assistance from The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), aims to support educators in their efforts to integrate global issues into their curriculum. These resources will help to support teachers from first introduction of global issues into the classroom, through to in depth analysis of issues.

Children’s Global Arts DVD
This DVD tells the story of the Children Global Arts project which started in 2003 with an exchange of artwork between children in Canada and children in war torn Afghanistan and Iraq based on the theme the ‘World We Want” and now includes arts exchanges with Canadian children and children in India, Chile, South Africa, Belize, Tanzania, Vietnam, Iran, and Nigeria.
The DVD features video footage of five lessons created and taught by Canadian teachers to develop Arts based exchanges with children in other countries around the world. The Children’s Global Arts project uses multiple forms of Arts (pictures, dance, drama, crafts, poetry, music, video clips) allowing children from a wide spectrum of cultures around the world to impart images and impressions of the “world we live in” and visions for “the world we want”. See project website for examples of children’s expressions from around the world – http://www.childrensglobalarts.ca.
With the support of CIDA Global Classroom Initiative the project has expanded enabling teachers to create Arts based program resources to develop ongoing global connections as part of their school programs.
