Global Stewardship: Me. Us. World.

The 2018 Global Stewardship Conference at Senior School happens January 31 and February 1, 2018. We are currently seeking recommendations for workshop sessions, off campus experiences, and keynote speakers! We invite all members of the St George’s community to consider leading a session or making introductions to colleagues and networks.

What is global stewardship? It is infusing an ethic of care to how we treat ourselves, each other and places. We look to infuse this ethic in exploring culture and diversity, contributing to environmental sustainability, and acting for social, political, and economic justice locally and globally.

Please email our team of students and staff hard at work on the conference via globalstewardship@stgeorges.bc.ca if you have ideas, would like to make connections, or would like more information from us.

You can also touch base directly with Sarah Coates (Senior School, scoates@stgeorges.bc.ca) and Pat Pachchigar (Junior School, ppachchigar@stgeorges.bc.ca) for global stewardship actions and ideas throughout the year.

Our Core Values guide our actions.  Here are things we would love all sessions to be guided by:
  • Humility: Sessions encourage discussions, making connections, and reflection.
  • Responsibility: Sessions and presenters promote a growth-mindset and help participants explore and understand the world and their place in it.
  • Respect: Presenters will respect differences and create spaces of non-discrimination.
  • Resilience: Participants are left with hope, optimism, and tangible actions they can take.
  • Empathy: Sessions and presenters value multiple perspectives and viewpoints.
  • Integrity: Presenters have first-hand knowledge of their session topic through lived experience, research, education, and/or certification and are excited to share their learning with participants.
