MELTON FOUNDATION: Global Citizen Conference

August 14

CONVENERS.ORG MEMBER EVENT

The Global Citizenship Conference is a unique event that provides tools and resources to promote global citizenship as a way to work together to solve today’s challenges around the world.

Each year, the Melton Foundation and one of our partner universities hosts a seven-to-ten day series of activities focused on Global Citizenship. The conference convenes about 100 Melton Fellows, faculty from participating universities, and leading Global Citizenship advocates, practitioners, and experts for three primary purposes:

  • Community: to build a global community around Global Citizenship in order to promote the concept and its practices;
  • Learning: to further the learning and leadership development of Melton Fellows as global citizens and advocates of global citizenship through trainings and workshops
  • Outreach: to bring global citizenship to the “grassroots” level, by working on local aspects of global issues at the host university and surrounding local community.

Our 26th annual conference will take place at Ashesi University College from August 14 – 20, 2017!
