Video #5: How Can I Do Good in the World?

If you, along with countless other volunteers, activists and global learners, have been asking yourself this question, and want to explore a fun little model that might provide a starting point for the answer, watch this video and use the following prompts for further discussion:

  • The video talks about personal development and global development being interlinked. Do you agree? How have you seen these links in your own life?
  • Which of the 4 quadrants (knowledge & skills, attitudes & empathy, thoughtful action and daily choices) do you most associate with “doing good in the world”? Why? Is there a quadrant you think most important?
  • What do you think is meant by a “learning mindset”? Why do you think this is in the center of the model?
  • Is there anything missing from the model presented? How would you answer the question yourself?
