          Abstract

          This article outlines a Global education initiative run by a group of professors, graduate students and pre-service teacher education candidates in a Faculty of Education at a Canadian university. The goal of this far-ranging program is to encourage teacher candidates to incorporate curricula on sustainable development, peace and global citizenship education into the conventional curriculum. The authors of the article have been involved with this initiative since its inception ten years ago. They have adopted Kotter's Strategic Model for Transforming Organisations (1995) as the basis of our investigation into effective organisational change in this project. In particular, the article considers the importance of leadership styles, infrastructural supports and consistent evaluation in their research. Ultimately, the authors probe ways to sustain educational change and innovation over a lengthy period during times of expansion and a leadership restructuring.
