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).
Throughout the week guest speakers presented on the theoretical and practical dimensions of global citizenship education, including diversity and the importance of recognizing multiple perspectives, human rights based approaches to global citizenship, perspectives on international development from the field, and the importance of making local to global connections for students.
Watch clips from some of the presentations from the Institute:
