Global Citizenship Forum at Otago
Planning is underway for the first in a series of student-led Global Citizenship Forums, which will support the wider Global Citizenship Programme by providing a regular structured space for interaction and exchange between students and faculty working on global citizenship initiatives around the network. The programme will be initiated and led by students, in collaboration with faculty and administrative staff, allowing for joint working and the blending of perspectives. The forum will allow participants to showcase research projects and examples of good practice at their respective institutions, to propose, develop and evaluate new joint activities, and to explore wider global citizenship themes through interactive exercises and workshops.
The first forum will be hosted by Otago University, 30 July – 2 August 2018, on the theme of Community Engagement, one of the Programme strands. The event will culminate in a “town n’ gown” global citizenship festival in the heart of Dunedin, New Zealand.
Information for students on how to apply will be available soon.
