BREAKOUT SESSION 5
“Global Citizenship Education”
11:00-13:00, 20 November, Tuesday, United Nations Headquarters Conference Room 12
Global citizens identify with being a part of an interdependent world community where cultural and ethnic differences are celebrated as a strength rather than weakness. Global Citizenship Education is about training young people to be full participants in this type of global society. This involves teaching respect and appreciation for cultural diversity, and a commitment to promoting and protecting human rights. It is about living those values locally, while thinking globally.
The breakout session will provide an opportunity to highlight the role of formal education, informal education and advocacy to achieve SDG 4: Quality Education.
