You will be contacted by your Global Citizenship Officer to remind you of key International Days and give you ideas as to how you might want to mark them. Marking at least one International Day whilst overseas forms part of your One Awards Foundation Year in Global Volunteering and Citizenship. Be as creative as you can be and remember to tell us about what you are up to!

“Many universities recognise that volunteering programmes provide participants with valuable skills and experiences that will help them succeed in higher education. UCAS encourages students to include information about volunteering activities in their personal statements. We include specific reference to Project Trust and the Foundation Year in Global Volunteering and Citizenship in our guidance.”
World Environment Day is celebrated around the world on the 5th June.
