Established by the General Assembly of the United Nations, the University for Peace convenes students from around the globe that are passionate about changing the world for the better. We welcome them to campus this week as they embark on a 1-year journey to become masters in areas such as Peace & Conflict Studies, Environment & Development, and International Law. UPEACE students, almost by definition, are interested in global citizenship and in helping to bring about a more just, equitable, safe, and prosperous world.

Located within UPEACE, the Centre for Executive Education shares these goals, and strives to make training available to those seeking shorter, more focused programs to attain their global citizenship objectives. Check out our upcoming courses to see how you can get involved!

Still feeling a little unsure about this global citizenship thing? Check out this short video featuring interviews with participants from a past UNESCO Forum on Global Citizenship. They ruminate on what the term means, why it matters, and what you can do to contribute!
What we're inspired by:
