Global Citizenship Education

Global Citizenship Education

ACGC understands Global Citizenship to be an ethos, a way in which to see and understand the world.  It refers to a sense of belonging to the global community and common humanity, with its presumed members experiencing solidarity and collective identity among themselves and collective responsibility to act at the local and the global level.  -Adapted from UNESCO: Glocal Citizenship Education: An emerging Perspective ED/2013/PSD/PHR/PI/4

ACGC provides various professional development opportunities for educators and the public to devleope their skills in global citizenship education.  To hear of upcoming opportunities, subscribe to our Teach newsletter.

Spring Reading Circle for Educators

Alberta past, present, and future educators are invited to join staff of the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation (ACGC) as we read the new release ‘The Girl with the Louding Voice‘ by Abi Daré this Spring 2020

Apply to Participate

12 selected educators will be provided with the novel free of charge (and shipped to your home!), and virtually meet together twice between May 15 – June 30th to discuss the novel as a literary piece, as a tool for global citizenship education in the classroom, and as a pathway to understanding the importance of promoting gender equality at home and across the globe. Educators will discuss curriculum connections, and ways the novel can be used to promote the competency of ‘Global and Cultural Citizenship’ in Alberta classrooms.

As a bonus, author Abi Daré has agreed to have a virtual meet up with all participants in late May!
