    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Changes in political, technological, social and economic realities since the early 21st century have led to more relationships between people of different nations. Educational changes which result from policy decisions also had an impact on Language Learning and Teaching. The heart of peace and global education is enabling people to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the world. The emphasis is on the unity and interdependence of human society, on developing a sense of self and appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social justice and human rights, as well as acting for a sustainable future in different times and places. Through language education we might promote positive values and assist students to take responsibility for their actions in order to see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.
