The Global Citizenship Conference (GCC) 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:
To build a global community around Global Citizenship in order to promote the concept and its practices;
To further the learning and leadership development of Melton Fellows as global citizens and advocates of global citizenship through trainings and workshops;
From August 13-19 we gathered at Ashesi University College to help answer one big question: "What is the role of a Global Citizen in a world that is in flux?" This is what you missed ... or maybe didn't.
The Conference marked the Melton Foundation's 25th anniversary. Find out what happened at Universidad de La Frontera (UFRO) from September 26th to October 2nd, 2016!
