The Global Citizenship Conference* is coming up March 6th to 7th at McMaster!

If you are passionate about local and global issues, then you’ll want to participate in the fifth annual Global Citizenship Conference.

More than 500 people are expected to participate this year, including McMaster students, Mohawk students, high school students, and community members.

Features of the conference include Olympic medalist kayaker and McMaster alumnus Adam van Koeverden, Hamilton anti-poverty activist Mark Chamberlain, and the co-founders of Empowerment Squared (CURE Canada) Leo Johnson and Michael Pett. Lectures, panels, workshops and open discussions will be held on topics such as human development, trade, environment, peace, media, gender, human rights, health, cross-cultural exchange, globalization, and poverty.

The aim of the Global Citizenship Conference is to bring about a greater understanding of the power all people possess as members of a global community. In doing so, delegates will use their roles as socially conscious global citizens to empower themselves towards learning, collaboration, and ultimately, positive social change.
