What is at the heart of developing a global perspective? Cultural sensitivity and the principle of reciprocity are central. At Charles Sturt University, the Wiradjuri phrase “Yindyamarra Winhanganha”—“the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in”—informs the way our social work international mobility programmes contribute to that realization. A multidimensional approach to planning and facilitation requires insightful leadership and an alignment of access and equity themes embedded throughout the curriculum. Outcomes for staff and students are life-changing; they are transformational and include critical reflection on eco-social work, human rights, and social justice within programmes that contribute in meaningful ways to host communities.
