As Seen On:
In today’s increasingly interconnected world, how do we prepare our children – and ourselves – to succeed and to become happy, informed global citizens?
A mother of three, Homa Sabet Tavangar has 25+ years’ experience helping governments create the conditions to spur global competitiveness, advising businesses on how to thrive abroad, talking to parents on raising global citizens, and training K-12 to adult educators on building global competencies and bringing the world into their classrooms.
In the acclaimed Growing Up Global, Tavangar shares her “parenting toolbox” to help give all children a vital global perspective. Through subsequent publications and projects, she has served as a leading voice in creating the conditions across learning environments and media to break barriers, and build global connections, social-emotional learning, equity, creativity and innovation.
The challenges of globalization, diversity, sustainability, and peace have never been greater. We need relevant, rigorous, empathy-building, 21st-Century education that helps make sense of these border-less issues and innovates around real human experiences. Homa’s work shows that this need not be overly complicated and can begin anywhere, right now.
