Global Action Circle 2023
The Global Action Circle (GAC) 2023 is an exciting opportunity for youth and adult learners to engage in peer-to-peer learning around education-related themes and personal learning questions. Led by the enthusiastic YouthxYouth hosts, the GACs provide a space for individuals to explore, deepen, and prototype solutions to their own learning questions. It’s a transformative experience that extends beyond the duration of the program.
In the Global Action Circle, participants embark on a learning journey with a small group of fellow learners. Together, they meet every other week to discuss and exchange ideas on various educational topics. The GACs foster a collaborative environment where everyone brings their unique perspectives, insights, and learning questions. Through meaningful conversations and shared experiences, participants gain new knowledge and develop their capacities as activists and changemakers.
