Aga Khan Foundation Canada & Alberta’s Academia partner to empower teachers with Global Citizenship Education

This summer, 35 educators from across Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Yukon came together in Edmonton to participate in the Global Citizenship Summer Institute. The five-day Institute was designed to help teachers learn more about global citizenship and how to better integrate it into their classrooms and schools.

The Global Citizenship Summer Institute was developed through a partnership between AKFC, the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation (ACGC) and the University of Alberta’s Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Research (CGCER).
