Cultivating Global Citizenship Capacities: First Steps Towards a Shared Future

Presented by Lucie Newcomb


Abstract: It’s no secret: the world/universe is getting smaller every day. How can we, as part of this “system”, contribute in meaningful and generative ways? What Is Global Citizenship? How, if at all, does it differ from Global Leadership? How is it cultivated? And, why should we care? We will explore options and opportunities for collaboratively devising a working definition based on three models: Leadership for the Common Good practices; Hall-Tonna Values Map deployment; and the Adaptive Leadership framework exploration. We will break into small groups to address one central question per group; reconvene as a group to synthesize; discuss vis a vis these models; and explore potential next steps towards building Global Citizenship capacities within ourselves and others.
