The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO is hosting a free panel discussion on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) in Wellington on 12 August.
Opened by Hon Jenny Salesa, Associate Minister of Education, the event will feature the perspectives of five well-respected academics and thinkers. Each was commissioned to write a paper discussing GCED from their own unique position, ideas and experiences. Perspectives range from Māori, Pasifika, academic and education to youth. All explore GCED from a New Zealand context, and consider approaches to GCED that may contribute to addressing the world’s pressing issues.
The purpose of this event is to share and discuss the papers, including a Q & A session at the end. It will also enable networking opportunities for anyone interested in the area of GCED.
Free entry, refreshments provided.
