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 most important aspect of the trip for me was Global awareness. We are not exposed to a lot of poverty, so it was good to learn about it in another part of the world.
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.
Just a quick note to say how impressed I was with your team who joined us on Friday last week. They are all superb ambassadors for your company and clearly want to make this a student-centred, fabulous experience. They also have boundless energy – something much appreciated by our own young people.
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
Truly a great experience – very professional! It went over and above my expectations, a once in a lifetime experience.
Well organised, educational and enjoyable way to learn about a wonderful country.
