Abstract

Global competencies can be promoted only if people from different cultures share their knowledge systems and traditional conceptual frameworks with the rest of the world. It is in this context that the authors propose that global education can benefit from ubuntu, Africa's indigenous philosophy of being. This case study highlights, among other things, how ubuntu aligns with the global competencies articulated in the Global Competence Matrix.
