GCED-2nd International Integrated Global Citizenship Education Workshop for Educators- 11th to 13th July
A three days workshop by GCED was organized at Ahlcon International School and attended by Poonam Kochitty(Principal), Priyanka Khanna and Sangeeta Batra teachers of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Lucknow. The workshop aimed to build the capacity of dynamic educators and school leaders to help develop attitudes and behaviors to contextualize, design, develop, embed and advance global citizenship into the school culture and curriculum. Whilst the world may have shrunk and become more interconnected, human rights violations, inequality and poverty still threaten the peace and sustainability.
GCED is UNESCO’s response to these challenges. The various eminent speakers from diverse fields spoke about the importance of Global Citizenship and the role of educators in shaping creative, responsible and global citizens.
To be Glocal is the message each participant carried with themselves after three days of engaging and empowering sessions.
