Get started with your school’s foundational work to define and implement global citizenship and intercultural learning
What does global citizenship mean to your students and school community? How do you embed global citizenship and intercultural learning in a contextually appropriate, intentional, and systematic way?
Many schools that we support along their school improvement journeys grapple with how to envision this work.
This workshop supports CIS member schools on their journey of developing and implementing a shared understanding of how global citizenship and intercultural learning looks in their context, and how it supports the learning and well-being of the whole school community.
You can expect to:
- use a process to identify common understandings of global citizenship in your own context as the basis of a draft definition
- explore the implications of implementing global citizenship and intercultural learning in your school
- feel confident that you can return to your school with strategies, tools and practical next steps to fully develop a definition of global citizenship and intercultural learning
- understand global citizenship as a driver for CIS International Accreditation
