SCIC Global Citizen Awards

Global Citizenship refers to our interconnectedness - a sense of belonging to a broader community which links the local to the global and the national to the international. It is a powerful path toward democratic, inclusive citizenship by people committed to justice for marginalized people throughout the world, and protecting the ecosystems upon which we depend. Global Citizenship is an understanding of how the world works and the links between our own lives and those of people throughout the world. It is a way of seeing that values social justice, equity, empathy, compassion, and respect for diversity. It is a belief that people can make a difference, and have the responsibility to do so.

About the Global Citizen Awards

For over 30 years, SCIC has celebrated people making important contributions to international cooperation, peace and global justice; and acknowledges the work being done for a more just, equitable, and sustainable world, where no one is left behind. 

Presented by the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation, SCIC’s Global Citizen Awards take place annually during International Development Week, the first full week of February. 

The Global Citizen Awards bring people from across Saskatchewan together to celebrate, to learn from one another, and to network and build relationships with like-minded people. Global Citizen Award honourees are nominated and selected through a peer-review process conducted by SCIC. Since it was initiated in 1990, over 100 Saskatchewan people, organizations, and campaigns have received the Global Citizen Award. During the more than 30 years of the award’s history, honourees have come from numerous backgrounds including educators, youth, community organizers, politicians, doctors, volunteers, and more.
