Six Melton Fellows joined the d.confestival from 14-16 September 2017 in Potsdam, Germany. Here are some of the highlights, brought to you by our delegates.
Last month, we gathered in Ghana to help answer one big question: What is the role of a Global Citizen in a world that is in flux? Here is what we learned!
We believe that Global Citizenship comes to fruition when put in action. So we took the conference out into the field! Over two days, conference participants, together with our local project partners, joined hearts, hands and minds to tackle pressing challenges that local communities in Berekuso (Ghana) are facing.
Looking for inspiration in your path toward global citizenship? You need look no further than our Global Citizenship Conference in Ghana this year!
Francisco Andaur and Constanza Manosalva attended the WBF in Santiago, Chile, and delivered headlights to cyclists in their hometown of Temuco while promoting cycling as a sustainable travel alternative in the twenty-first century. Here's their story!
As Melton Fellows are preparing for the Global Citizenship Conference, Millicent Adjei of Ashesi University talked about the deficit ideology and how we can defy the standard narrative about Africa.
Unable to obtain visas to Pakistan, Melton Fellows set in motion a plan to gather interviews of Pakistanis to compliment interviews of Indians, as the Narratives team explores stories of Partition. Here is Project Team member Julian Klauke in his own words:
The month of April has led three members of the Melton Foundation’s Project Narratives team, Marleen Haupt, Nickhil Sharma, and Julian Klauke, to India to conduct interviews for our second documentary, this time focussing on the influences of the India-Pakistan conflict on people’s lives.
