What does it mean to be a UK citizen? What does it mean to be a global citizen? What does it mean to be a citizen of the EU, and what does our post-Brexit future look like? This book explores all of these topics, and more. It also considers ways in which young people can become ‘good’ or ‘active’ citizens, through activities such as volunteering and involvement in politics, and encourages engagement in the topic of national identity.
The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.
