Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding under the auspices of UNESCO
The Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) was established in 2000 as a UNESCO Category 2 centre to promote education for a Culture of Peace. APCEIU is working in close collaboration with UNESCO Offices, National Commissions of Member States, related educational institutes, and civil society to promote global citizenship education (GCED) under the framework of education for international understanding (EIU) towards a Culture of Peace.
APCEIU has devoted itself to strengthening GCED/EIU capacities by pursuing its philosophy and policies through training teachers and teacher trainers; research and policy development; developing educational materials and programs; organizing different levels of workshops and conferences; and strengthening the network of teachers, educators, experts, civil society leaders and other stakeholders.
Dorji wangchukThe GCED was so helpful that I feel I should explore more about global concerns. it also help in my teaching learning process
FELICIDAD CORENNA BROÑOViewing the GCED videos made me more aware of how I belong not just in my community and country but in the global community. It humbles me to realize that I really cannot and should never be an "island". I need my brothers and sisters from around the globe. I need to be interdependent with them, to be tolerant, empathetic, and understanding. We need to exercise fairness and equality of wealth and opportunity. It's only in this way that we can attain world peace and harmony.
Minakshi IyerThe GCED was so helpful that I feel I should explore more about global concerns. The course is beautifully structured in a way that it can be very well understood by everyone even if the person doesn't know English well. I am highly motivated to go to the ground level and work with people as my contribution to SDGs.
ARLENE GAJARDOThe Global Citizenship Education (GCED) course was informative and helpful in teaching practice. It taught the importance of education for social change and developing a global perspective free from racial prejudice. It equips one to become an informed citizen and critically literate, socially connected and respectful of diversity and differences, and ethically responsible. This course is essential in today's society.
