Making Global Citizens in Maastricht

UM has hosted the first Global Citizenship Education Symposium on 1 March 2018, with more than a hundred students, lecturers and community stakeholders in attendance. The event was opened by Rector Rianne Letschert talking about how she has developed into a global citizen. Representatives from UNESCO and other organisations, charities and student initiatives invested in the topic gave speeches during a plenary session. As befits UM’s dedication to PBL and active problem-solving, the event concluded with a design thinking session to generate ideas on how to teach global citizenship competences.
