© TakingITGlobal Youth Assoc. TakingITGlobal (TIG) is a registered charity focusing on global issues by promoting awareness and engagement among global youth. TIG uses an online social network, aimed primarily at youth, to raise awareness and discussion on a number of global issues and encourages youth to take action that affects their local and global communities. TIG's main offerings include the multilingual online classroom platform, which guides youth to a deeper awareness of social, economic, and environmental issues through collaborative learning activities and advocacy training. By building a bridge between learning and action, the platform fosters mutual understanding across continents and languages. There are a number of tools that youth participants engage through, including participating in discussion boards, writing blogs, posting art to an online global gallery, creating project maps, and developing/ managing projects through the Commit2Act app. The Centre for Global Education (CGE) is an educational division of TakingITGlobal. CGE develops and delivers virtual, collaborative learning projects aimed at K-12 students (5-18yrs) that engage and empower youth as global citizens, through connecting them to the people, places, and issues they are learning about in their classrooms and encouraging them to take action that affects their local and global communities. Since 2008, CGE has facilitated educational programming for 100,000's of students, from over 600 schools, in more than 55 countries.
