CCMA, Global Citizenship, and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
CCMA’s Global Citizenship Initiative (GCI) Taskforce will convene in late September to begin investigating how CCMA can best support the development of global citizenship within its member institutions and communities. We hope to connect this important work to regional, national, and international efforts to advance global citizenship and mutual understanding. Global citizenship plays an important role in the United Nations’ ambitious and ongoing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 4 calls on nations and communities in every corner of the world to create and sustain “quality education” for all. More specifically, SDG Target 4.7 aims to “ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development” by the year 2030. We are excited to explore CCMA’s role in fulfilling this important vision in the Maryland, DC, and Delaware region and beyond.
