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
My son had the most incredible adventure. The things you managed to pack into 3 weeks were wonderful. It was a joy to watch him and the others go through the whole process. So increedibly proud of them all, and Global Action gave them the opportunity.
A very strong trip. It offered an insight into agencies that would not be possible as an ordinary outsider. We had engaging individuals leading sessions, who had lots of experience. There was also a good range of workshops
The trip was absolutely perfect! Our son came back quite thankful for what he gets at home and showing more empathy towards less fortunate people. I truly am very grateful to Global Action for thier amazing work and wonderful commitment towards younger people.
I am much more aware of global issues, more confident in my choice of University degree, and feel inspired to make a difference to improve this world.
An amazing experience full of life changing memories.
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!
