Due to changing possibilities surrounding operating such an organization in many countries, the coalition looked to establish the organization in a country that provides a stable, open, and democratic environment. Canada suited the required characteristics.
In establishing the organization, the coalition wanted to ensure that it cannot be used for the promotion of the personal worldviews of a small number of people. To ensure the comprehensive reach of all students, we include not only national or regional representation bodies, but also global organizations that represent students for a particular sector and/or field of study.
The main aim of the organization is to ensure students are a structural part of education decision-making processes, influence global education politics, and have a powerful platform to represent and advocate for their views on global issues. Outreach and advocacy are the very core of the newly created organization.
The open floor for debates and discussions between student organizations is an integral part of the Global Student Government. However, we envision this organization as more than a forum, since it would serve as a global representative body for all students and would prioritize infrastructure development for student governments around the world.
