One You, One World

With the advent of globalization and advances in media, today’s youth are exposed to more global situations than previous generations.

Sometimes youth aren't given enough of an opportunity to understand what's happening in the world. Often students have been taught to think of the world and ‘here’ and ‘there’, rather than as one planet that we all share.

Plan International USA has teamed up with Weekly Reader to create the One You, One World series to encourage students to think about their place in the Global Community. One You, One World covers issues such as child rights, poverty, child exploitation and HIV/AIDS.
