But a new survey of young Americans’ geographic knowledge shows that they’re falling short. We’re realizing that we need more than just resources for schools. We need a movement. And the My Wonderful World campaign is designed to get people thinking, talking, and acting.
Most important in any campaign, of course, is the message. Ours is simple: Everyone—parents, educators, business and community leaders, and kids and teens themselves—can take action to help the next generation be prepared for an interconnected world.
How can you take part in a global economy when you can’t find Japan or New York on a map? How can you plan for a call with someone in Singapore if you don’t know time zones?
Global knowledge is essential. It’s a no brainer. Kids who understand the world today can succeed in it tomorrow. So join us in thinking, talking, and taking action—and help us spread the word about My Wonderful World.
