Learning for a more just
and sustainable world

In Scotland, our curriculum recognises that good Health and Wellbeing is central to all learning. We must ensure that our PE, PSE and Home Economics curricula supports young people to develop mental, emotional, social andphysical wellbeing now and in the future. Promoting the wellbeing of children is therefore the responsibility of all teachers.

Wellbeing and Global Citizenship share many natural synergies. “Global learning can support young people’s wellbeing through giving them a sense of connection with other people, and a belief that they can make a difference to their own lives and the lives of others” (Cumbria DEC).
