Global Citizenship Summer Institute

Global Citizenship Summer Institute

ACGC was pleased to partner with the Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium (ERLC) and the Center for Global Citizenship Education and Research (CGCER), to offer a two-day institute titled Becoming Ethical and Engaged Citizens in a Globalized World: A Path Towards Global Citizenship on August 16-17, 2016, through a grant from Alberta Education.  

This was the second institute in the province. The first institute was held in 2014 in partnership with the Aga Khan Foundation of Canada, and the Center for Global Citizenship Education and Research (CGCER).

ACGC anticipates holding the next institute in the summer of 2018.  In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to ACGC Teach for announcement on other PD opportunities at Teachers’ Convention or through the Learning Consortium.
