Active Global Citizenship Conference
November 17, 2008
Lock Haven University, Lock Haven PA
The purpose of the 2008 Active Global Citizenship Conference at Lock Haven University is to empower delegates to become conscientious citizens who create sustainable relationships among and within local, regional, and global communi-ties. Through workshops, panels, poster sessions, and discussion groups, the Active Global Citizenship Conference will provide a forum where critical approaches to understanding globalization and global citizenship are explored and de-bated. By facilitating the free exchange of ideas, we hope to stimulate a sense of responsibility where campuses and citi-zens become active political, environmental, and economic agents of change.
