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
The experience has given me a fascinating insight into the work of humanitarians and has allowed me to broaden my horizons.
5 days in Geneva would be an amazing experience for any 17-18 year old. But this trip was truly amazing - it opened up their eyes to life and what really goes on. My daughter loved every part of the trip, learnt loads, and would love to go and live in Geneva now!
There are too many highlights on the itinerary to mention but what we did and saw challenged our worldview, made us humbler as human beings, and provided enough rest and fun at the same time. Thanks for exposing us to the tourist side but also the raw reality of life in Zanzibar.
Experience was amazing - allowed me to do things I never thought I would, and it changed me positively.
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
I was really inspired by what I learnt and it made me realise how much work goes into helping people around the world and how a lot still has to be done.
