The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO invites you to the 'Global Citizenship Education ideas exchange'
The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO is holding a free ideas exchange on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) at the National Library in Wellington on 20 August from 5:30 to 7:30pm. It will also be live streamed through our Facebook page.
GCED is about empowering people to face and resolve local and global challenges, and to become proactive contributors to a more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure world.
The event will bring together a range of voices who will share their experiences and projects from across Aotearoa New Zealand that have had an impact on their communities; by adopting diverse cultural perspectives and approaches, these projects support emotional resilience and wellbeing.
