Global Routes Project

We develop approaches to school curricula that are inclusive and representative of diverse global communities.

What is Global Routes Project?

The Global Routes Project provides children with the practical means and creative scope through which they can actively make links between their own lives, local and global topics and themes; and between the present and the past.
We offer an open forum for discussion on equality and diversity in education. Indicative strands include connections between photography, education, racism and stereotypes, cultural capital and how the curriculum can encompass the perspectives of young learners.
We lay the groundwork for future participatory project-based education practice and research. We aim to work alongside other initiatives that are addressing gaps in representation; for example, through producing educational materials that bring to light previously hidden ethnicities and genders.

Our approach

Local - Global Education

We offer a twilight session for teachers on the topic of 'Local - Global Education'; this session includes how photography can be used to support dialogic learning and ways to approach 'cultural capital' in your school. The session can take place at your school (England only).

Our Learning Model

The Global Routes model is a model of dialogic learning, which provides school children with the opportunity to photographically record their local area.

“This is my Uncle, he lives far away, but every Friday he comes to East London Mosque to say special prayers, because Friday is a sacred day for Muslims. Its called Jumu’ah”
