    The Project

    The Global Citizenship Education project

    At Maastricht University, a group of teachers and students is probing how we can boost Global Citizenship (GC) education and social engagement. We hope to develop a holistic approach to GC education that targets students, teachers, the institution, and external stakeholders. We are now focusing on:

    • Reflection on the nature of global citizenship, and internal communication of what it is and why it is desirable;
    • Introduction of novel ways of teaching and assessing (aspects of) global citizenship in curricula, and training teachers to teach and model global citizenship themselves;
    • Supporting service and community-based learning and recognizing activities that help students to develop GC competencies.
