Your Name and Title: Mary Ellen Lynch, Global Education Consultant and Adjunct Professor

School or Organization: Mary Ellen Lynch Consulting

Co-Presenter Name(s):

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Rhode Island, United States

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): Global Educators and Consultants, Community Development Educators and Practitioners

Short Session Description (one line): 

Peaceful, just and inclusive societies are necessary to achieve the SDGs. SDG #16, Peace and Justice can serve as an innovative teaching method to empower students to be changemakers by engaging them with refugee communities to promote inclusion, foster community participation and help students develop global competencies such as enhanced cross-cultural communication, empathy, and collaborative action. 

Full Session Description (as long as you would like): 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes for the first time the contribution of migration to sustainable development. Migration is a cross-cutting issue and relevant to all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 10 out of 17 goals contain targets and indicators that are relevant to migration or mobility. 

In this presentation, participants will gain tools to integrate global citizenship education and SDGs into curriculum to help students understand the challenges of a globalized world through the lens of migration. Peaceful, just and inclusive societies are necessary to achieve the SDGs. SDG #16, Peace and Justice, will be a focus of the presentation to provide participants with best practices in applying SDG's frameworks to teach issues of inequity and social justice by empowering students to explore global migration issues in their local context. Engaging students with refugees promotes inclusion, fosters community participation and students develop global competencies such as enhanced cross-cultural communication, empathy, and collaborative action. Participants will learn about projects completed by Roger Williams University students in partnership with refugee organizations in Rhode Island to learn how to enhance work around human rights through place-based education.
