The Asia-Pacific Centre of
Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) will organize the 6th Youth
Leadership Workshop on GCED (Global Citizenship Education) from 25 to 31 May
The one-week Workshop aims to
build capacity of dynamic youth leaders around the world to identify strategies
to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Target 4.7. While
enabling participants to deepen their understanding of GCED, the Workshop
allows the young leaders to play a major role and become part of a wider
network of youth leaders for GCED.
During the Workshop, participants
will identify specific priority issues around global citizenship and establish
plans for the future direction of GCED. Working both individually and in
groups, the young leaders will devise the goals and strategies for use at local
and national levels. Participants will learn about specific areas such as GCED,
human rights, and peace building
through information sessions and engage in dialogue and debates on the evolving
issues. As part of the Workshop, participants will also make a field visit to
discuss the role of youth for a more peaceful and sustainable future.
Application for the 6th Youth
Leadership Workshop on GCED must be submitted before 17 March 2020 (KST 23:59).
Successful applicants will be notified by 26 March 2020. Travel expenses and
Workshop fees will be covered by APCEIU for the selected participants
(participants will be responsible for the domestic travel expenses and visa
fees in their own countries).
