UNESCO/APCEIU 8th Youth Leadership Workshop on Global Citizenship Education (GCED)

In 2022, the Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) holds its 8th Youth Leadership Workshop on GCED, inviting young educators and education activists advocating global citizenship through education. Held annually since 2015, the Workshop has trained over 350 young leaders around the world in various focus areas, including critical media literacy, human rights, advocacy and youth empowerment, under the main theme of Global Citizenship Education (GCED).

Application Deadline: 3rd April 2022.  

Having experienced the global crisis over two years, we have witnessed the rapid changes in education voluntarily or forcibly. The shift away from the traditional classroom has brought new opportunities as well as challenges, which includes the creation of new platforms for learning, adoption of innovative methods, and the highlighted importance of informal and non-formal learning. Amid this transition, young people strive to continue learning and adopt innovations in learning, either as learners, practitioners, and advocates.

This year, the Workshop aims to provide a venue for young education advocates for knowledge & experience sharing on innovative approaches to GCED in the changing learning environment. In the Workshop, participants are expected to bring their own experiences on fostering global citizenship in digital learning environment or challenging situations and seek effective and innovative ways to bolster such efforts.

Together with APCEIU, GCED Youth Network will co-organize the Workshop, and international experts and resource persons on GCED willshare their expertise with the participants throughout the Workshop. And most importantly, each participant is required to bring their own experience and wisdom to share.
