The Global Citizenship Programme at Rysensteen Gymnasium can only succeed with the support of the strong forces in our network. Through the history of Rysensteen and the Global Citizenship Programme, we have collaborated with a long series of partners consisting of NGOs, universities, study programmes and other institutions, who inspire us and share our goal of educating global citizens. We also like to draw on other parts of our network, including students’ parents and personal contacts, from time to time. We also apply for funds to cover the costs of international activities and events with the help of special partners.
First and foremost, Copenhagen University is a very important partner with, amongst others, The Saxo Institute and The Institute for Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies (ToRS), with whom we have arrangements of internships. Additionally, The Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), the Danish-Egyptian Dialogue Institute (DEDI) and the Erasmus Programme have also been collaborators as well as inspirations, and we hope we can draw on the expertise of the many specialists that there are in these organizations.
Furthermore, we also have partnerships with several organizations overseas, such as the NGO Project Rousseau in New York, which our students visit on their GCP-travel every year (read more about our partnership with Project Rousseau here). The UN City in Copenhagen is also a frequent collaborator that our first year students visit every year as the culmination of their introductory GCP-course on the UN (read more about Rysensteen work with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals here).
We are always looking for new international partners to expand our horizons and broaden the possibilities of educating global citizens.
