Abstract Ensuring a more sustainable world requires leaders who are global citizens with sustainability mindsets. This is especially true in tourism as a global phenomenon with tremendous impacts on local communities and global society. This article presents the structure and preliminary outcomes of a pedagogical experiment aimed at creating global leaders with sustainability mindsets and aligns closely with approaches outlined for global citizenship education and sustainable tourism pedagogy. It describes the various components of the program and outlines the elaborate assessment framework developed and concludes with a discussion on how the model could be replicated in the tourism context.
