Ustinov College

Matariki Global Citizenship Programme

The 2016 Ustinov Annual Conference on global citizenship took place in conjunction with an important initiative from the Matariki Network of Universities of which Durham is part.

Students and faculty from six universities – Dartmouth College (USA), Durham University (UK), University of Otago (New Zealand), Queens University (Canada), University of Tübingen (Germany), and Uppsala University (Sweden) – came together in Uppsala in April 2016, for the 1st international workshop to develop the new Global Citizenship Programme in the Matariki Network of Universities. The workshop used creative and interactive methods to engage both students and faculty, explored critical understandings of global citizenship, and was the first step in forming the content of the Matariki Global Citizenship Program, and its next steps.

At the Ustinov Annual Conference 2016, we built on the foundations laid at the Uppsala workshop, exhanged ideas and experiences, and formed networks to continue the development of global citizenship at Ustinov College, Durham University and within the Matariki Network.
