Meet the Young Leaders selected for Global Youth Advocacy Workshop on GCED – Busan, Korea

Meet the Young Leaders selected for Global Youth Advocacy Workshop on GCED – Busan, Korea

The United Nations Global Education First Initiative (GEFI) has selected 48 inspiring youth activists and leaders from across the world on the basis of their current engagement and future commitment in educating youth at the local and national levels around GCED. The youth leaders are attending the Global Youth Advocacy Workshop on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) taking place from the 30th March to 4th April 2015, at the Geumjeong Cultural Center in Busan, Republic of Korea.

Organized in partnership with the Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) and the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP), the workshop aims to build the capacity of dynamic young leaders from across the world to advocate for GCED. Participants will identify specific topics around GCED and advocacy, reflecting on the global challenges around post-2015.

Working both individually and in groups, the young leaders will expand on these topics, devising advocacy goals and strategies for use at local and national levels. Participants will also engage in information sessions and workshops at the training to support them in this task, on areas such as ‘Advocacy tools to build strategies’, and ‘Bottom-up planning for advocacy campaigns’.

Congratulations to all the selected youth leaders and to Opportunity Desk Founder, Grace Ihejiamaizu.
