The pandemic has challenged countries and raised questions about governments’ response. It has also highlighted how sharing more information could have helped prevent some of the fallout. The concept of Global Citizenship Education (GCED), a term often used as a solution to today’s challenges caused by globalisation is a form of civic learning involving students’ active participation in projects addressing social, political, economic, or environmental issues. But this model is too individualistic and, as a UNESCO article argues “global cooperation materialized in measures such as sharing reliable information among countries, coordinating the global production of medical equipment…could have considerably minimized the spread and the impact of the virus.” There should not be a conflict between GECD and sharing information for the good of the world. As the article goes on to say, “Covid-19…highlights the urgency of developing global educational alternatives…it is our responsibility as teachers, educational researchers, policymakers…to encourage reflections that expand our possibilities to address the pedagogical dimensions of global civic challenges”. This needs to be made a reality now.
