CEMS Global Citizenship Seminar

Every year, as part of the CEMS MIM Curriculum, each partner school organises the so-called Global Citizenship Seminar, a two-day course that brings together representatives from corporate and/or social Partners, professors, and students, for an experiential learning experience focused on one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

An opportunity for change

The Estoril Conferences 2022 edition focuses on seven distinct topics that directly link to the SDGs, addressed in the CEMS Global Citizenship (GC) Seminar, with the particular focus of engaging the “Purpose Generation” in addressing these global challenges collectively.

This initiative is a great opportunity for the students participating in the CEMS GC Seminar, who will have the possibility to contribute with relevant content to nurture the Estoril Conferences’ discussions, but also for Estoril Conferences. By supporting the CEMS GC Seminar, we will be able to draw from its discussions and insights, engaging directly witht the young, purpose-driven generation in the dialogue about the most pressing global challenges of our time.

Turning knowledge into action

The outcomes of the CEMS Global Citizenship Seminar will outline how the Purpose Generation can be engaged in the resolution of the SDGs.


Focused on creating positive change for the society and the planet.


An action plan will be designed towards the achievement of the respective SDG.

Community Engagement

The outputs will be shared with the world in a video format, hoping to create awareness and inspire everyone to get involved.

A shared win

The best ideas are found collectively. This is why students creating the action plan during the CEMS Global Citizenship Semina will not be competing against each other and ideas won’t be ranked. Instead, this initiative is about finding common ground, and sharing and developing ideas that students are passionate about, which simultaneously serve a greater good and help identify ways to initiate and drive the needed change.
