Global Citizenship and Service Learning Educators

This Community will be focused around collaboration and learning to advance our practices in the realms of service learning, global citizenship education, sustainability, teaching for the Sustainable Development Goals and developing a critical, reflective and inclusive approach with our practices and programs.

Sessions will be facilitated by LeeAnne Lavender, a storytelling and global citizenship educator who is also an independent coach and facilitator. She has worked in the East Asia region for over 10 years and, while now living in Canada, remains active in many virtual learning experiences in the region. Each session will feature educators from ACAMIS schools who will share best practices and spearhead exploration of key themes. 

This community is ideal for any educator or leader engaging in aspects of global citizenship education and/or service learning, or desiring to grow these programs in his/her/their classroom or school.
