Applications are open for the Meg 2022 Global Citizenship Ambassador Program.
This is a national program, Years 5/6 upwards, where participating schools nominate two student Global Citizenship Ambassadors to take part in the free one-year program.
Student Ambassadors will work alongside students from other schools across Australia on a personalised Global Citizenship project relevant and co-created by their school community. Students will be asked to liaise with their own student populations as school representatives and, in doing so, build their leadership skills. This program also builds both their own and their school community’s understanding of what Global Citizenship is, why it is important and how it can be developed.
Program Learning Objectives:
· Develop an understanding of Global Citizenship and why it’s important
· Explore concepts linked to Global Citizenship such as DEJI, Intercultural Understanding and the Sustainable Development Goals
· Expand their understandings of different approaches to leadership
· Show an understanding of how to take action on a topic of interest
Meetings with the program facilitators are twice a term via video conferencing. Both students and school educators have access to supportive resources throughout the project.
It’s a great opportunity, with limited free places. Early applicants are given priority.
