“The IGC Award is not just another award: it’s a way of life."

The International Global Citizen’s Award

is a programme that encourages young people to become better global citizens by

  • finding out about other cultures and outlooks
  • finding out more about how their everyday lives affect the environment and the lives of others
  • working with others in various capacities
  • taking small actions to help make the world a better place, and
  • reflecting on their developing knowledge and awareness

The Award recognises development and action by participants over a period of time – not reaching a fixed “standard”.

The programme is operated and run by local centres in different countries, following the same international model.
