Calgary Centre for Global Community's picture
Sector or Industry: 
Community Development
Organization Description: 

Calgary Centre for Global Community provides education, engagement and research opportunities to enhance and expand Calgarians' capacity for responsible, well-informed, effective global citizenship.  Our work recognizes the interconnectedness of local and global issues and their impact on the well-being of our communities.

We are at a critical crossroads in human history. Transitioning to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world is not only possible but necessary.

Calgary Centre for Global Community was created to help speed up this process of positive change by building individual and community capacity for effective global citizenship.  We believe people are capable of bringing about extraordinary transformation. Our programs are designed to mobilize grassroots democracy by engaging people in learning, dialogue and action.

Global Citizenship Education is at the core of what we do.  We are not an issue based organization.  Instead, we strive to develop people’s capacities for analysis, empathy and action so that they can lead change on the issues they are most passionate about.
