The Fourth UM Global Citizenship Education Symposium
Maastricht University has committed to developing a repertoire of activities that ensure Global Citizenship Education for bachelor and master students. There are many different views on what global citizenship education entails, however.
One perspective on GCEd is offered by UNESCO (2018): “the goal of global citizenship education is to empower learners to engage and assume active roles both locally and globally to face and resolve global challenges and, ultimately, to become proactive contributors to a more just, peaceful, tolerant, inclusive, secure and sustainable world”.
There are many examples of how GCEd can be contextualized in education. In the next few years, we will explore how we can best make GCEd fit our local context and ambitions.
On Thursday 22 June 2023 the Fourth UM Global Citizenship Education Symposium will allow educators, students and external stakeholders to learn more about (how we can foster) global citizenship.
Program and registration will open in April.
