    Objectives. The objective of this research was to give a perspective how worldview takes form. The task is to find out, what beliefs, understandings, attitudes and values returnee students have according cultural spheres and human rights. Methods. The participants of this study were sixth-graders who attended same school in the metropolitan area of Helsinki. The material was collected using theme interviews and a written map task. The material was categorized data-driven related to cultural spheres, and theory guided related to human rights using Banks' (2009) levels of cultural identity. I used Hampden-Turner's and Trompenaars' (2000) and Hofstede's (2013) theories related to cultural dimension when I analyzed the results of cultural spheres. When analizing the results of human rights I used De Blij's (2008) theory of globals and locals and Audi's (2009) theory of cosmopolitans and nationalists. Results and conclusions. The participants brought up different notes about cultural spheres in theme interviews than in map task. The examined/they linked prosperity, justice and friendliness in Western Countries, poverty and instability in Latin America, poverty, instability and problems created by own society in sub Saharan Africa, poverty and income inequality in eastern Europe and Russia, instability, income inequality and problems created by own society in China, Koreas and Vietnam, poverty and visible Hindu religion in India, instability, poverty and strict Islamic religion that controls women in North Africa, Middle East and Southeast Asia, prosperity and lack of space in Japan and visible Buddhist religion in Southeast Asia. With regard to human rights the examined positioned on fourth stage of Banks' (2009) stages of cultural identity. In Berry's (1997) model of acculturation they supported integration, in De Blij's (2008) local-global axis they positioned at least somewhat to globals and in Audi's (2009) nationalist-cosmopolitanists axis they got variable results. The target of this research was not to make generalizations, but it may offer an opportunity to educators to perceive individual worldviews of the students.
