Lessons on global citizenship are as close by as your local grocery store, library, highway or high school.
What can you do?
In the global connections project, you can:
- Talk with people about world issues and global situations.
- Explore language, family traditions, culture, global connectedness, genealogy and their concerns.
- Discover how you can make a difference in your community and your world.
These are just some of the many ways you can participate in this project.

Resources to support youth in global connections
What does it mean to show at the fair?
For 4-H'ers, local and state showcase events (like the Minnesota State Fair) are not just fun events. They provide youth opportunities to exhibit the knowledge and skills they've gained throughout the year– and to continue their learning.
Contact your local 4-H office for global connections project showcase opportunities near you.
