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
An experience everyone should have at least once in their life, eye opening and exciting. Definitely changed the way I'm going to live my life.
We are so happy with how the trip went and know that it has fundamentally affected the girls, with many now wanting to develop their careers in human rights, poverty reduction and development which is fantastic. I think the expedition definitely opened hearts and minds.
We have had our son home for a week now. It is wonderful to see him so animated and so very thrilled with the entirety of his trip. I am so incredibly grateful that he has had this marvellous experience, thanks to you and your Global Action Team. Thank you to everyone for the most brilliant, successful trip.
The experience has given me a fascinating insight into the work of humanitarians and has allowed me to broaden my horizons.
The trip exceeded my expectations and was much more enjoyable than I thought it would be, whilst still being extremely informative. Eye-opening, very enjoyable, and inspiring further research about the institutions we visited.
It was fantastic that it covered so many aspects of the curriculum - this trip also went way beyond what they learn in school.
