Global Citizenship Seminars for Faculty & Administrators

GCP71_fac_sessionThe seminars for faculty, administrators, and staff focus primarily on supporting partner institutions as they develop strategies and programs to make education for responsible global citizenship the converging point in their students’s quest for knowledge and identity. This requires higher education institutions to determine what students need to know (regardless of the discipline they study) in order to lead productive and rewarding lives as future professionals and as active citizens within an increasingly interdependent world struggling for balance. To meet this challenge, our seminars provide a space for members of college and university communities to reflect on their overarching missions and develop innovative ways to re-orient their teaching and research.

Including the broad concepts of global citizenship and engagement into the institutional fabric of the specific institutions requires a long-term institutional commitment. Starting and sustaining this type of work also requires the engagement and support of a dedicated group of critical stakeholders composed of the faculty, staff, and administrators. Our seminars often serve as the catalyst for establishing, maintaining and expanding such dedicated groups.

Homeland Earth - A Campaign to Promote Planetary Awareness

"(T)he globalisation push of the last decades has connected all people on all continents and of all nations in a complex way and brought them into an indissoluble relationship with each other. Thus, whether we like it or not, an earthly community of destiny has come into being. (…) But many people and nations lack awareness of this earthly community of destiny. Especially in times of crisis, every nation retreats into itself and seeks its salvation in national solo efforts (…)" "What we need is a worldwide public opinion that represents a planetary awareness and is strong enough to influence the policies of states and international bodies in this direction (…) we must also develop the awareness that we are citizens of Homeland Earth and act accordingly. This is the idea of our international campaign "Homeland Earth." Heimatland Erde | ASPR The Global Citizenship Alliance supports this Heimatland Erde (Homeland Earth) campaign of The Austrian Study Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution (ASPR), which was founded in 1982. The GCA encourages all of its partner institutions and alumni to familiarize themselves with the campaign for Homeland Earth and to consider supporting it by signing the appeal for this campaign, disseminating its manifesto and participating in events related to the campaign.
