2020 Global Citizenship Seminars

The student seminars focus on a similar mix of substantive topics in a variety of instructional formats, including experiential learning during a field trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site in neighboring Germany. These seminars also include intensive small group project work designed to develop the habits of the mind and the heart to think critically and strategically about how students can act as global citizens on their campuses, in their communities, and in their future educational and professional careers.

2019 Global Conference on Teacher Education for Education for Sustainable Development

This conference will bring together ESD and GCED experts with policy makers, teacher educators and other practitioners in education to explore, discuss, and develop locally relevant strategies to systemically implement Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Global Citizenship Education (GCED) as called for in Sustainable Development Goal 4.7, the Global Education 2030 Agenda and other UN policies that our nations have agreed to carry out between 2020 and 2030.  The conference will be the first global meeting to recognize the goals and the designated framework entitled ‘Education for Sustainable Development: Towards achieving the SDGs (ESD for 2030) being launched in June 2020 in Berlin, Germany. The conference will focus on the role of embedding ESD and GCED within formal education systems, seeking existing successful practices and identifying their potential for policy reform and other education legislations. Special interest groups will focus on aspects such as: Embedding ESD and GCED in elementary and secondary education, Online teaching approaches engaging and accessing those in remote or underserved regions, ESD as a potential to enhance education and training systems for Indigenous youth, ESD and GCED in early childhood care and education.

Lazarus and Liberty

Core faculty and long-time friend and supporter of the Global Citizenship Alliance, Peter Rose, published an article in the Massachusetts Review in response to the recent discussions about Emma Lazarus' poem "The New Colossus" hanging on a bronze plaque inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. In Peter's words, "To say that Lazarus would be appalled at the mockery made of her sonnet—and, implicitly, of all those who found her words encouraging—by Donald Trump’s Acting Commissioner of Immigration, Ken Cuccinelli, would be an understatement. Like her sonnet, Emma Lazarus was herself a Colossus, a true American giant in comparison to the xenophobic Lilliputians in today’s Washington." massreview
