Our World Programme, Global Citizenship

A series of free lectures and events to understand global citizenship and reflect on its themes.

Our World Programme: Global Citizenship

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 an opportunity to hear from experts, and explore and reflect on the themes of global citizenship.

The series of lectures and events for semester 1 will take place at 1.15pm on the following dates from October 2019.
