For language teachers involved in global education, 1993 has been a busy year of "teaching for a better world". A look at any newspaper shows that our global village is challenged by problems of war, poverty, discrimination, AIDS and environmental destruction. Yet, around the globe, more and more language teachers are working to empower their students with the knowledge, skills and commitment needed by world citizens to solve these problems. The Israeli-Palestinian and UK-IRA peace initiatives show that progress is possible - all that's required is hard work, dedication and a vision of how things might be. This winter, I'll be in California for a family Xmas then off to Bangkok to speak about global education at Thai TESOL. To all of you, best wishes for a good holiday and a great 1994!!
