What is a New Global Normal Chapter?

A chapter is a youth-led group of students who work to carry out New Global Normal's mission in their local communities. Chapters organise activities and events that promote intercultural communication and engagement locally, collaborate with other New Global Normal chapters the world, and engage with the global NGN community through online networks and events.

Who Can Be a Chapter Leader?

If you are passionate about intercultural communication, then you could be a chapter leader! We are looking for collaborative, persevering students at schools and universities who are driven to make positive change.  

Why Should I Start a Chapter?

By establishing a New Global Normal chapter, you join the movement to unite a divided world and begin a conversation in your local community about the importance of bridging across cultural divides and recognising the value in our collective humanity. A New Global Normal chapter is a powerful mechanism to leverage multiculturalism in the student body and engage with the school community on the powerful outlook that this vests in us, and how we can use our unique positions as global citizens to make positive social change. Chapters also give members the opportunity to join a global network of youth passionate about intercultural communication, providing a space for members to practice active global citizenship whilst networking with fellow changemakers
