U21 Global Citizenship

Universitas 21 Global Citizenship is an online leadership development programme, delivered by Common Purpose, a global not-for-profit organisation that specializes in Cross-Boundary Leadership.

Note that the 2024 spaces have been allocated.
Each member institution is allocated a set number of spaces for this programme, due to popular demand the UofG allocation has now been filled and no more applications will be accepted.

How it works?

Global Citizenship is open to 2,000 students across the U21 global network of 28 universities, spanning 20 countries and 20 time zones.

Participants will develop ideas together, across borders and time zones, honing skills needed to thrive in the 21st century whilst tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems, outlined in the United Nation Sustainability Goals (UNSDG).

Each week requires a minimum of 3 hours of online learning that you can complete in your own time. In addition during weeks 1 and 2 there are real-time, online reflection workshops, where you will draw on the learning from that week and engage in discussions with other students from across the globe.

Successful completion of the programme and all activities will earn you the Global Citizenship micro-credential which you can display on your LinkedIn profile, demonstrating that you have developed the skills to tackle complex global issues and stand up as a leader.

How to get involved?   

The opportunity is open to any registered student at the University (UG or PG). 

The three-week programme launches will take place between 11-29 March. 

Each week requires a minimum of 3 hours of online learning that you can complete in your own time (please add u21@universitas21.com to your email contacts and check your spam email if you have not received information about your group).
