About this resource

Should the future of primary education be influenced by global issues such as migration and climate change? This report, commissioned by the Cambridge Primary Review Trust, explores just that. It looks at the direct impacts of global issues on children’s lives in the UK and explains why global and sustainable themes in education are now more important than ever. The report showcases the need for global perspectives in education and looks at how we can embed sustainability and global citizenship at the heart of educational policy and practice.

Why we recommend this resource

Commissioned by the Cambridge Primary Review Trust, an independent institution with over 40 years experience producing evidence-based studies, this report provides an in-depth look into the role of globalisation and sustainability in primary education and is backed up by conclusive evidence. Due to its hefty length and impressive detail, this report is less of a ‘light-touch’ introduction to the topic. Instead, we recommend this resource for primary educators who are already passionate about embedding sustainability and global perspectives into their teaching and are now ready to delve a bit deeper.
