30 March 2010: NEW VIDEOS ... Global Citizenship Student Perspectives
Some of our current students can be found talking about their experiences on the Global Citizenship Study Abroad Programme on the new Student Videos section of our website or our new YouTube page
We hope to bring you more videos of life on our strongly student recommended study abroad programme very soon.
2 March 2010: Pass It On Book Cycle
The Global Citizenship Study Abroad Programme's Action Group have launched their project for this academic year.
Their idea is a simple one: books contain knowledge essential to education and long-term self-sustainability, and therefore providing people who lack books with them is a direct step towards positive change. Through book donation boxes, advocacy rallies, direct-to-faculty publicity, and other action oriented endeavours, The Pass-It-On Book Cycle is collecting books to send to Tanzania, where they will stock otherwise book-barren schools and libraries.
15 October 2009: Making Sense of the Financial Crisis
Students from the Global Citizenship Programme went to a special event at the National Theatre on Monday hosted by comedian Mark Thomas.
Mark Thomas: A Comic Tries to Understand the Economic Crisis was an entertaining and educational evening which dealt with a very serious topic - how did the recent banking collapse happen? Thomas interviewed witnesses from the financial sector, academics and financial reform campaigners to try and make sense of the crisis.
A common theme from the evening's discussion was our role as citizens in shaping subsequent finance legislation. Should the banks work for themselves or society? Perhaps a possible topic for a Global Citizenship Action Group to work on in the future?
