ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
On Saturday, September 22, join us for a unique one-day conference exploring (and complicating) experiential learning, charity, and solidarity in our classrooms. You won’t find training like this anywhere else this year, and definitely not for free! Through story-based sessions, as well as break-out sessions on theory and practice, participants will explore global citizenship, anti-oppressive, and anti-racist education.
Featuring case studies, stories and workshops led by international partners, participants, educators, and advisors of the first ever Educators for Solidarity Initiative which took place between Saskatchewan and El Salvador.
- Examine international perspectives on Global Citizenship Education (GCE) and the role of educators locally and globally;
- Understand the importance of a human rights-based approach to GCE;
- Examine global sustainable development issues within thematic areas;
- Recognize schools as spaces of human rights and GCE;
- Explore applications for GCE concepts in a classroom context, and how to translate GCE into action;
- Explore pedagogical approaches to GCE, “soft” vs. “critical” global citizenship, and;
- Share successes and challenges in doing this work.
