Over 1,000 students from The College Merthyr Tydfil will be taking part in an innovative Global Citizenship Conference as part of their Welsh Baccalaureate studies. The week-long conference, taking place from 18th to 22nd April, forms part of the ‘Global Citizenship’ challenge of the Welsh Baccalaureate.
In preparation for the conference, the students have worked with a wide range of local and national organisations to learn and gain awareness about a range of local and global related themes such as ethical sourcing, human rights, food and shelter in the human world, gender equality, waste management, just in time logistics, dementia and health, criminal justice, politics and much more!
The students have now built upon what they have learned through these sessions and created their own information stands to be displayed in the college’s atrium area throughout the week.
Members of the public have been invited in to the college to view these displays and talk to the students about the work that has been undertaken on each of the different themes.
In addition, the college will be welcoming a range of guest speakers to talk to the students about issues such as Health and the impending local elections. This will include a Hustings event where students will get the opportunity to question local candidates about their election manifesto’s and key policies related to education.
The Conference will be open between 10-4pm from Monday 18th April to Friday 22nd April. Please come along and take a look at the fantastic displays and work of our students.
