    [post_content] => Dear Community,

Value Statements are the guiding and aspirational principles that unite a community, inform direction, and help a group make tough decisions in times of ambiguity.

Dragons began the work of crafting new Value Statements over a year ago. It started with a call to the community (staff, student, and admin) for essays in response to the prompt: "What is the heart of Dragons?" From those qualitative responses, a Word Cloud was born.

Dragons admin then used 237 phrases taken from the "Heart of Dragons" essays to create 50+ first draft Value Statements. With the help of our student ambassadors, we have narrowed the list down to 9 statements.

The aim of this survey is to find out if we're on track with these value statements, or need to further refine or build them. Just as we started with our community, we now turn to you again for your feedback in this final stage of review and revision.

Will you please take a few minutes to share with us your level of RESONANCE & INSPIRATION in response to the following proposed Value Statements?

TAKE DRAGONS VALUE STATEMENT SURVEY

There's space at the end of the survey to offer more feedback or write/add your own Value Statement if you feel something essential is missing. Thank you so much for sharing your time, insights, and feedback with us. Gratefully, The Humans @ Dragons HQ

    [post_content] => Dragons was recently interviewed for an article on Global Citizenship Education published in Edition 21 of the Professionals in International Education Review (PIE Review).

Here's an excerpt. You can also visit the PIE website or online PDF issue to read the article in full...
What's important to us is that our participants are actively exploring their own unique definitions...
 

"...Aaron Slosberg, the director of student programming for the transformational education tour group Where There Be Dragons, feels the definition of global citizenship is fluid.

"For some, it may mean a life mission to connect across international boundaries and embody a transnational identity," he says. "For others, it could mean devoting oneself to a single home community and addressing global issues in a local context." 

He continues, "What's important to us is that our participants are actively exploring their own unique definitions (with all their inherent complexities) of what it means to be a 'global citizen' and allowing those new understandings to inform future choices."
