Over the past few years, we two major gatherings of global citizenship educators and scholars to explore the policies, practices, pedagogies and possibilities of global citizenship education in higher education. In October 2008, we hosted an international conference called Global Citizenship Education and Post Secondary Institutions: Policies, Practices and Possibilities, which featured renowed scholars such as Nita Freire, Donaldo Macedo and Vanessa Andreotti.


The following year, we co-hosted a symposium for faculty and students at the University of Alberta to tackle the question: Citizenship, social responsibility and a university education: What is the connection? We featured a Keynote by Dr. Lynn Mario de Souza of the University of Sao Paulo, titled "Another Voice: Transdisciplinary conceptions and possibilities for Global Citizenship Education".
