Global Civics Academy offers a new online course on Global Civics. The course covers issues ranging from climate change to pandemics. Students will examine which centripetal forces are pushing us together, and how they can be managed. The course will survey our options to manage our increasing global interdependence, and will provide the tools for each student to come up with their own version of a global civics.
