Understanding GCED in Asia-Pacific: A How-to Guide for ‘Taking It Local’
Respect for diversity, solidarity, and a shared sense of humanity—core elements of Global Citizenship Education (GCED)—are deeply rooted in the cultures of the Asia-Pacific region. To highlight these common elements and to address the challenges of understanding GCED, UNESCO Bangkok and APCEIU developed a publication titled GCED: Taking It Local in Asia-Pacific in 2019. As a follow-up measure to ensure that educators, policymakers and other education-related stakeholders are supported in the region, this publication, Understanding GCED in Asia-Pacific: A How-to Guide for ‘Taking It Local’, has been developed. This guide will deepen stakeholders’ understanding of GCED through building knowledge and capacity on the diverse cultural examples of GCED, as well as to generate dialogue across the region that can contribute to building more peaceful, inclusive and sustainable societies.
