Universitas 21 Global Citizenship Course

This month, 96 UCD students will participate in the U21 Global Citizenship course. This is a  three week, part-time, online course for U21 students focused on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG). The UCD students will be joining 2,000 students from across the U21 network in the online leadership development course, delivered by Common Purpose.

U21 is a truly global network of 27 universities that span 18 countries and 19 time zones. 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 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.
