The power of global learning is ‘blue marble thinking’—the idea that, like an astronaut looking down at the Earth, by leaving our own home, we can see it differently. It’s understanding that the vast majority of our society is a social construct, which means we have the power to change it, sometimes in radical ways. The way we do things isn’t the way we have to do things. That is, at its heart, the power of global learning.
