Global Nomads

Looking to extend your GEx experiences, connect with local and global community partners, build empathy and cultural competence and be an engaged global citizen — beyond Mulgrave?

GLOBAL NOMADS: TAKING ACTION BEYOND MULGRAVE
Mulgrave’s Grade 6-12 Global Nomads leadership team engages with global and local community partners beyond Mulgrave to generate learning, connections and impact around big intercultural and intersectional global citizenship issues and problems using the the lens of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with an emphasis on the following SDG themes:

  • #1 No Poverty
  • #2 Zero Hunger
  • #3 Health and Well-Being (physical health)
  • #4 Quality Education
  • #10 Reduced Inequalities
  • #16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  • #17 Partnerships for the Goals

Secondary SDG thematic focus with partners outside school may also be explored under certain conditions: #3 Good Health and Well-Being (mental health), #5 Gender Equality, #6 Clean water and Sanitation, #11 Sustainable Cities, #13 Climate Action, #14 Life Below Water, #15 Life on Land; however, if these are areas you are passionate about, you are strongly encouraged to consider joining another leadership team that tackles these SDG issues directly including the SSAC, Wellness, Environmental Sustainability and GSA teams.

We will focus on “project-based” and “team-based” learning, leadership and engagement in collaboration with local and global partners. Our goals are to move “beyond the borders” of Mulgrave and learn, connect, and take action; we will also explore team projects with other schools and educational partners where possible. The work of the Global Nomads is an extension of the Upper School GEx and our growing commitment to building authentic and sustainable community partnerships, locally and globally. We strongly encourage anyone interested in this kind of independent team leadership model around global citizenship themes to join us and join a team! Depending on final sign-up numbers, there may be separate meeting times for Middle and Senior School teams.

KEY EVENTS TO NOTE

  • Workshops and training on Global Citizenship themes, DEIJ workshops and UN SDGs
  • Global Nomads’ Retreat
  • Self-Directed SDG Team Projects: each team will likely take on 2-3 initiatives for the year, depending on your scope

*Mulgrave is committed to a model of  “distributed leadership”, providing access to leadership opportunities for a wide range of students whenever possible and appropriate.

If this is a team you would like to join, we meet Tuesdays (G10-12) and Mondays (G8-9) at lunch in 2540. Team members need to apply to join the club through an email to me or via the leadership application in Middle or Senior School. For more information about joining the team, reach out to Mr Wilson awilson@mulgrave.com.
