Alberta Council for Global Cooperation

The Alberta Council for Global Cooperation (ACGC) is a network of organizations and individuals in Alberta working globally and locally to achieve sustainable development and global citizenship. We believe all people can become engaged citizens working towards peaceful, just, and inclusive societies.

About the Award

Every year, our selection committee chooses 30 outsanding individuals from a collection of nominations across Alberta and the world. These few are selected for their contributions to our global community, their compassion for those beyond figurative and literal borders, and their connection to Alberta.

Among many other benefits, selected youth will be featured and recognized at a public Top 30 Celebration event during International Development Week. ACGC continues to provide the opportunities for these young people to develop themselves as leaders in Alberta, Canada, and the world.
