Global citizenship is the social, political, environmental, and economic actions of globally minded individuals and communities on a worldwide scale. It is the belief that individuals are members of multiple, diverse, local and non-local networks rather than single actors affecting isolated societies. It is also the awareness that our actions in our homes, neighborhoods, cities, and countries impact, and are impacted by, global forces. Thus, as a member of the global community, we all have civic responsibilities to the world as a whole. Promoting global citizenship in sustainable development will allow individuals to embrace their social responsibility to act for the benefit of all societies, not just their own. — United Nations

Nurturing Global Citizenship through English (NGCE) is an English for Specific Purposes (ESP) project that puts language learning and practices in the context of a set of major global themes, including those of the environment, intercultural communication, the media, and technology. The NGCE serves as a framework for a rich learning experience in support of the pivotal belief that young people can all make a difference using modules designed for collaborative learning activities under a comprehensive variety of themes, objectives, and topics suggested by UNESCO.

The project seeks to empower students to embrace their social responsibility to act for the benefit of all societies while developing their knowledge and language skills and the values they will need to engage fully and effectively with the world. Through this project, it is expected that students will be more open to differences, more receptive to diversity and more motivated to take actions to make the world a better place.
