Participate in seminars with international NGO experts working in the field, take part in a community development project, and learn how sustainable livelihoods programmes improve lives by introducing alternative income streams into developing economies.
Develop your knowledge and engage critically with international and local conservation NGOs, explore biodiverse environments through observational research, and learn how communities are engaging with permaculture, climate change reduction and endangered species conservation.
Seminars with UN Human Rights agencies in Geneva, working on a clean water project in a refugee camp, meeting a gender rights activist, or exchanging ideas with school children in a secular ethics workshop – there are many ways you can explore social justice issues on a Global Action trip.
Global Learning is education that puts cross-curricular learning in a global context. We won’t be asking you to sit an exam on it, but we hope you will look at life differently after your trip (in a good way!).
It helps support:
“We must foster global citizenship. Education is about more than literacy and numeracy. It is also about citizenry. Education must fully assume its essential role in helping people to forge more just, peaceful and tolerant societies.”
Ban Ki-moon, Former United Nations Secretary-General
The experience has given me a fascinating insight into the work of humanitarians and has allowed me to broaden my horizons.
We are speechless. What an utterly incredible experience. Thank you is not enough; this is one of those life changing experiences - and our children are so privileged to be there.
I just wanted to let you and the team know what a fantastic time my group all had in Zanzibar! I have worked with several tour companies in the past but none have been as impressive as Global Action; your organisation and thorough planning ensured a well-run trip. My students have all gained so much in many ways!
I was really inspired by what I learnt and it made me realise how much work goes into helping people around the world and how a lot still has to be done.
The trip exceeded my expectations. I did not anticipate the far-reaching positive effect it would have on my daughter.
The most important experience was developing students' awareness of the bigger global picture and seeing them grow as people.
