Global Citizenship Planner | Winter

Project Trust’s Global Citizenship updates are designed to provide our volunteers with ideas and resources to run lessons and workshops whilst overseas. During Training in July we were inspired to hear all the ideas our volunteers had on how they can mark Global Citizenship Days, and we can’t wait to see the end results.

Recent and upcoming days which you may be interested in marking include:

The minimum requirement for the Overseas Unit is to mark one day, explaining why you chose that day to focus on and what you did to celebrate it (pg 12-13 in your Overseas Placement Booklet). However we encourage you to fully engage with Global Citizenship Education by marking as many days as possible.

Here are some examples from previous years’ Volunteers:

Don’t worry if you are not able to mark the international day on its exact date, it’s not a global issue for just one day of the year!
