About Global Citizenship Foundation

Global Citizenship Foundation is an independent, apolitical and non-partisan organization fostering active and engaged global citizenship through Global Citizenship Education (GCED) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). With this in mind, we are mobilizing all stakeholders to join us in shaping young people into aware and engaged global citizens — of today and tomorrow — who have the right blend of skills, discretion and strength essential to shape the future of our world.

At Global Citizenship Foundation, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We work with educational institutions and organizations to catalyze their individual efforts in the domain of global citizenship education and provide them a collaborative platform for developing and advancing GCED pedagogy and practice.

GCF fosters a whole-school approach to developing GCED curriculum and culture within the school ecosystem.
