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
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your help, guidance and kindness of helping me and everyone else navigate our way through Nepal. This has been one of the best trips I have ever been on! It was great fun and very interesting. This is going to be something that I would like to do more of in the future, thanks to you.
As I want to study veterinary medicine at university, my experience working with the turtles will help me massively and was great work experience.
Extremely good- inspirational, engaging, interesting and well delivered. OHCHR was brilliant as the speaker got down to the level of the students, didn’t patronise but really challenged everyone in the room.
Really good! The facilitators were super friendly and knowledgeable, and it was amazing to get to see so many international organisations.
I learnt about the sustainable development goals, and I was inspired to look into them more to see what I can do to make a difference.
An exciting, fun, varied and educational visit. Professionally run and super well organised.
