As an annual Global Citizenship Education (GCED) programme for youth, the Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) will organize the 3rd Youth Leadership Workshop on GCED.
The five-day workshop aims to build the capacity of dynamic youth leaders on GCED and engage them in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Target 4.7, to foster global citizenship through education. 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 GCED 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 also engage in information sessions to support them in this task, on areas such as 'Deepening the Understanding of GCED' and ‘GCED Youth Advocacy tools.’ As part of the workshop, participants will also have the opportunity to contribute to the "Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity" by participating in a concurrent session to discuss the role of youth in GCED.
Applications for the 3rd Youth Leadership Workshop on GCED must be submitted before 7 April 2017 (KST 09:00). Successful applicants will be notified by 17 April 2017. Travel and local expenses will be covered for all successful applicants (participants will be responsible for the domestic travel expenses and visa fees in their own countries).
