Becoming Involved

Our programs are open to any college or university which commits to:

  • bringing students to our student seminars
  • sending faculty/administrators to our faculty programs
  • working with us to develop more tailored local programs, such as workshops or short seminars focusing on specific institutional needs
  • or any combination of the above

Some institutions focus initially or solely on the institutional/faculty development aspect while others see Alliance programs as primarily an opportunity for student learning and travel.

It is possible to become involved with the Alliance by initially sending a smaller number of students or faculty/administrators to one of our programs in order to get a sense of our work and ascertain if and how a deeper partnership and larger commitment might be possible and beneficial.

 

 


Costs of participation* (as of 2018)

  • US$1,900 per person for student seminars and US$1,400 per faculty advisor accompanying a student group
  • US$2,500 per person for faculty seminars

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
