Global Citizenship Certificate

What is a Global Citizen?

An individual who demonstrates a commitment to understanding one’s own identities and cultures in relation to others and communities, while developing intercultural consciousness. They do this through engaging with people with diverse identities and perspectives, while analyzing the interconnectedness of their local and global communities to understand perspectives beyond their own and to work with others in ways beyond their own.
