Global Citizenship, Leadership in Action by Joyce Halsey, upper school principal at the American International School of Zagreb

The International Global Citizen's Award (IGC) provides a flexible framework for structuring a meaningful course or after-school activity based on global and local citizenship.
This workshop will present a case study of a one-quarter middle school elective course that aims to achieve the student learning goals of the IGCA, while also training students to run their own service-oriented student council.

Students explore:

  • Cultures other than their own
  • Global footprint of consumer choices they make
  • Environmental responsibility
  • Influence and involvement with others
  • Personal community service
  • Advocacy, persuasion and promotion

Students may also have the option of pursuing the Bronze IGCA award through their participation in this course.
