Global citizenship education is one of the aims of UNESCO. It fits well with the University's aim to equip its students and staff with the awareness that the world is interconnected and that every individual plays a part in promoting sustainability, peace and intercultural understanding.
Our Global Citizenship programme is launched for the first time at the University of Bath. It is open to all, students and staff, and participation is free. Experts, some from the University of Bath, some from other institutions or organisations, will help us to explore and reflect on the themes of global citizenship.
This first event will launch the programme and introduce its speakers. Professor Peter Lambert will be our guest speaker, but we will also hear from members of staff and students and understand why the University of Bath is including Global Citizenship in its programmes and why this is important.
Ruqia Osman, SU Education Officer will make a speech on Black History Month, introducing the SU programme and explianing why it is important that we celebrate Black History in our classroom, on campus and in our wider local community.
The CLT will present a workshop on sustainibility in the curriculum. This will challenge participants to reconsider their understanding of citizenship and sustainability and to recognise its vast scope. With this insight, we will seek to identify where we as individuals, and as a community, might already be working to learn about and address these issues.
Don't forget to bring an electronic device (laptop, tablet, mobile) so that you can fully interact in this session!
The event will start promptly at 1.45pm. Refereshments will be served in the East Building Foyer from 1.15pm .
