Internationally, global education has become a professional concern of many teachers and teacher educators. Its impact on foreign language teaching is constantly growing, e. g. via current discourses in literary and cultural studies as well as through impulses from environmental education or Content and Language Integrated Learning. Global issues such as peace, human rights, globalisation, sustainability and the environment enter the school curricula in different subjects worldwide. This volume discusses the chances and challenges of global education for English Language Teaching.
