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!).

“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
An amazing, life-changing experience for students and staff. The most organised, beneficial educational trip you could ever experience – I have never come across a company with such an extensive programme, where you feel you are positively making change in the world. The learning that took place throughout the programme was beyond outstanding
The turtle project was amazing because it helped us connect with nature and get away from technology. They were very careful about what they did to help the environment.
The trip was very inspiring and gave me unique insights into UN agencies. I would recommend this trip to everyone regardless of their anticipated field of study - whether international relations, science or even philosophy!
It truly was a very special trip and one that I know has had a huge impact on the students. The opportunities they had were fantastic and the students made the most of each and every one. The whole team based both in the UK and Nepal have been fantastic in the planning and throughout ... I cannot thank you enough. It was the least stressful trip I have ever been involved in!
It was fantastic that it covered so many aspects of the curriculum - this trip also went way beyond what they learn in school.
The most important experience of the trip was getting the students to see what goes on in international agencies (dispelling some prejudices and inspiring them to get involved globally).
