Global Citizen Events 2019 – Success!

Global Citizen Events is an annual initiative that promotes the UN Sustainable Development Goals and celebrates the impact Okanagan citizens have in global and local humanitarian efforts.

Global Citizen Events are organized by a network of local humanitarian nonprofit allies, GECCO being a leading partner. The overall objective is to create dialogue about specific goals, their relevance to our lives and to create a linkage between the general public and local and regional humanitarian organizations.

Throughout the month of February, we coordinated five successful events exploring cultural diversity (Taste of Home), international education barriers (Global Schoolhouse), immigration (Global Music Fest), youth leadership (Sustainable Development Challenge), and food access for mobility challenged individuals (Magical Night of Laughter).

Thank you to everyone who helped to make these events a success! Check out our “Past Events” page to see photos and highlights from the events and join us next year!
