WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A GLOBAL CITIZEN?

Children are encouraged to explore their sense of self-determination and community through individual and collaborative work. Inspirado en la pregunta- ¿Que significa ser un ciudadano global?- nuestro estudio ha sido transformado en una instalación de luz y espacio para explorar elementos derivados de las exhibiciones de arte.
