Today's students only know a world that is interconnected with access to information on an unprecedented scale.  To successfully navigate this world, students need a robust and relevant education in social studies, grounded in well-developed historical, economic, geographic, civic, and media literacy skills.  The CCSS 2021 virtual conference, Cultivating Global Citizens for the 21st Century, will help educations develop and share the resources, skills, and competencies necessary to cultivate students who engage meaningfully and responsibly in an evolving global community.
