U21 is offering a new online international opportunity for students across the network this October (2020). Universitas 21 Global Citizenship is an online leadership development course, delivered by Common Purpose, a global not-for-profit organisation that specializes in Cross-Boundary Leadership. There are up to 75 free student spaces available per member.
The course is open to 2,000 students from all universities across the U21 network. U21 is a truly global network of 27 universities that span 18 countries and 19 time zones, and throughout the course participants will engage with and learn from students across the globe.
By developing ideas together, across borders and time zones, students will develop skills needed to thrive in the 21st century whilst tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems, outlined in the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG). With the support of Common Purpose’s trained facilitators, participants will be guided to reflect on the improvement in their cultural competency and awareness throughout the course and how they, as individuals and as groups, can turn their learning into valuable global action.
The U21 Global Citizenship course will take place from 5 October-23 October 2020.
We hope that you will want to join up for this free opportunity. Please note that there is a limited number of spaces (approximately 75) per member university and U21 will operate a waiting list once all allocated spaces are filled.
