About the Conference
Welcome to our 26th Global Citizenship Conference (GCC). We are gathering in Ghana from August 13-19 to help answer one big question: What is the role of a Global Citizen in a world that is in flux?
What do we mean by a world in flux? Well, does it seem as if the world is swinging in unexpected, unpredictable directions?
On one hand global under-5 mortality rate has halved between 1990 and 2015, and the global number of people living in extreme poverty has fallen below 10%.
On the other hand, civic spaces are shrinking around the world, the effects of climate change are increasing, forced displacement is at a record high, and for the first time in history, and mega-cities are increasing in number.
The call for a paradigm shift is becoming increasingly louder. The world needs a new kind of leadership that embraces diversity and nourishes collaborations beyond boundaries of religion, race or geography, to forge equitable, sustainable solutions.
