Global Citizenship programme and Forum

Join 200 fellow UK and international students from UWE Bristol to take part in a unique leadership development experience. During this programme you will learn about how to make change happen and develop key leadership skills.

The Global Citizenship programme will develop the skills and competencies you need to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is your chance to play an active role in advancing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. 

During the programme, you explore Open-Source Leadership – a new model of leadership co-created with Common Purpose by over 1,000 young people, globally. It is designed to take eight hours over a three-week period. When you complete this two-part programme you will gain two micro-credentials which you can display on your LinkedIn profile and as part of your digital backpack. You will also become part of the 99,000 Alumni network.

You will be invited to access the Global Citizenship course materials from Monday 29 November 2021.

Please note: You will need to complete the programme as preparation for the Global Leadership Forum where you will use your learning to contribute to live online discussion and debate.

The Global Leadership Forum takes place on Monday 13 December 2021 from 16:00 to 20:00. During the Forum, you will have the opportunity to engage live online with visionary leaders from around the world, representing massive international brands as well as unsung heroes who make change happen.
