We initiated an Award in Global Citizenship Education in 2018. This rewarded education sector or community groups who were doing outstanding work to encourage New Zealanders to become responsible and active global citizens.

The winners were:

  • Patea Area School (Education Sector)
  • Generation Zero (Community)
  • Tiaki Early Learning Centre (Innovation).

St Johns College and UN Youth were also highly commended.

Each winner received a certificate and $3000 at a prize giving ceremony and reception at Parliament, hosted by Hon Jenny Salesa, Associate Minister of Education. Read more about the winners here.
