An exciting, new secondary school teaching resource to support the teaching of Citizenship and PSHE. Based on Article 27 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child - the right to a decent standard of living - this thought provoking resource explores global citizenship and economic well-being.

Activities explore topical issues relating to money and will help young people make financial choices that are both ethically and financially sound. Case studies from Brazil and Ghana bring a global perspective. Just Living will be relevant to many secondary curriculum areas especially the Economic Wellbeing and Financial Capability strand of PSHE in the English curriculum.
