About the Conference

Outside The Lines - Unlocking The Potential For Transformational Change

The Global Citizenship Conference (GCC) provides inspiration, tools and resources to promote global citizenship as a way to work together to solve today’s challenges around the world. This year, we’ve taken our approach to “collaborate across boundaries” to greater heights through an exciting partnership with Net Impact at the 2018 Net Impact Conference (NI18) in Phoenix!

Connected to the 2018 Net Impact Conference theme Outside the Lines, we aspire to unlock the potential for “transformational change that defy traditional expectations. We’ll dive deep into bold new trends and practices that challenge conventional wisdom, break barriers, and enable us to change the world.”


The 2018 Global Citizenship Conference may be over, but the journey towards transformational change has just begun.
