We at the Santa Fe Council on International Relations have just updated our mission. We connect New Mexico and the world by engaging and educating people to become responsible global citizens.

For CIR, “global citizen” captures the layer of identity we all bear that is inherently global—as members of a global economy, globalizing society, globalizing cultures, and so on. The more we explore and understand this concept, the more responsible we can be as stewards of the planet and of wider human society. Above all, global citizens want to live in a world of gender equality, sustainable economic growth, human rights, environmental stewardship, peaceful conflict resolution, and religious and cultural diversity.

Of course we will, as we have for 51 years now, continue to promote an in-depth understanding of globalization and international issues, while also welcoming international visitors to northern New Mexico. CIR offers lectures by distinguished diplomats and scholars, travel opportunities, and renewed educational activities for students (such as our Global Citizen Passport Program). Our efforts stimulate dialogue and educate members, students, and the community about crucial globalization and foreign affairs issues–and shows them ways in which they can act to make a difference.

Note that we are now accepting applications for this year’s Academic World Quest challenge. Join in the fun! The winning team gets an all-expense-paid trip to Washington DC!
