Activities and Programs

Interactive Programs

Global Nomads Group aims to bring the world into the classroom. In doing so, its programs are interactive, innovative, and global. GNG organizes programs for schools and students year round with a focus on 6 thematic areas:
Global Development Issues
Environment and Climate Change
Conflict and Human Rights
Religion and Culture
Health and Well-Being
Sustainable Communities
Global Politics
All of GNG''s programs have four components in common:

Integration into school curricula and education standards;
Direct and live dialogue with peers from around the world who are
personally affected by the issues being discussed;
Global perspective;
Ongoing dialogue among participants.
To date, Our programs have delved into highly complex issues like the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, 9/11 and the war with Iraq, and have encouraged youth, tomorrow''s leaders, to begin seeing themselves as citizens of the world. GNG participants have explored amazing places thousands of miles away, such as the ancient city of Petra in Jordan and the Mayan ruins of Copan in Honduras, while meeting and speaking directly with the young people living in those locations.

For each program, Global Nomads will provide participating schools with:

A lesson plan and learning resources for students and teachers;
Sample questions for students to ask in order to participate in the class;
Advice on teaching with video conferencing and interactive media;
Access to GNG¹s existing network of partner schools in the U.S. and in other countries;
Sign-ups, scheduling, and coordination of students and schools;
Facilitation of the videoconferences;
Experts in relevant areas when appropriate;
Post conference resources for students to learn more or to stay in contact with each other;

Technical support
All GNG programs are in line with the United Nations Millenium Development Goals
