Global Citizenship

Global Citizenship & Your School

Based upon years of experience working with diverse school communities in more than 116 countries, we have seen the challenges in bringing together staff, students, and parents from multiple cultures.

These challenges impact the ability of leaders to influence their community and for educators to effectively collaborate.

We help schools develop their leaders and teachers while evaluating their educational strategy to discover new ways to live their mission. We help you engage your teachers, leaders, students, and the larger community in intentional work leading to practical development and intercultural learning.

What actions will impact your staff and community?

  • Develop and refine your leadership skills to excel in a diverse environment and avoid surprises
  • Uncover biases that can negatively impact your community and school programmes
  • Measure your intercultural competence and identify strategies to make improvements
  • Evaluate your mission and strategy for school development
  • Explore the impact of your programmes and provide guidance on how to enhance intercultural learning

A model for global citizenship and intercultural learning by Leo Thompson

By joining some dots, Leo Thompson presents an ‘unpacked’ model of global citizenship and intercultural understanding (GCIU). The ambitious model pulls together diverse research to provide an overview of the broad humanitarian scope of GCIU work and how core values, attitudes, concepts, and competencies intersect.
