Aimed at educators and global citizenship education practitioners, the purpose of the Global Citizenship Summit is to create a collaborative time and space for service, sustainability, environmental and experiential educators to share materials, ideas, methods and skills, and meaningfully explore shared questions and challenges. This is a ‘flat’ conference–all participants will be contributors and learners! It will be held over three days–from September 19th to September 21st. Details of the activities for each day are listed in the Schedule section.
Participants should arrive Thursday or Friday morning. Those arriving on Thursday are responsible for securing their own accommodation. For recommended hotels near NIST, please see the Downloads section. There will also be local follow-up meetings to the summit organized in cities throughout Southeast Asia for the spring of 2015. These meetings will be led by key summit participants who are based in those cities and will serve to allow for follow-up on progress made in schools, organizations, company, etc following the summit.
Any questions about the conference should be directed to Marcus Leslie at [email protected].
“At Global Citizenship Summit #1 in Bali, we
- – learned from each other
- – shared resources and ideas
- – discussed common challenges and brainstormed solutions
- – networked with like minded colleagues from the region
- – ate well and had fun
- – met new people with whom we still collaborate
At Global Citizenship #2 in Bangkok, I anticipate that we will do the same – and more!”

“The last Global Citizenship Summit at the Green School in Indonesia was a seminal professional growth experience for me. It was there that I became inspired by fellow educators, many of whom, seven years later, I still actively network and collaborate with all around the world. Those educators, along with the resources and practical tools I got from the Summit, were integral in my success in launching the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) program at my last school in Tianjin. And those same people, resources and tools are still helping me now implement service at NIST.”
– Teresa Tung, NIST International School
“The Global Citizenship Summit in Bali, Indonesia was one of the best professional development opportunities I have attended in quite a while. The other participants I met shared their knowledge and resources and have since become great friends and colleagues that I continue to work with today. The upcoming Summit in Bangkok promises to be even better!”
