Capacity-Building Workshop on “Strengthening Global Citizenship for Sustainable Development”

From the 20th to the 23rd of October, 2020, SEAMEO RETRAC organized a 4-day workshop on “Strengthening Global Citizenship for Sustainable Development” under the funding of the Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (UNESCO-APCEIU, South Korea) at the Centre’s premises – 35, Le Thanh Ton, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

This workshop not only provided participants with ample opportunities to better understand the concept and principles of Global Citizenship Education (GCED), but also engaged them in insightful discussions to share their experiences with other participants from different institutions, colleges and universities in Vietnam about how to contextualize and adopt GCED into their schools’ curriculum and related programs.

Four main topics introduced in each day of the workshop included Introduction of Global Citizenship Education, Contextualization of GCED in the Regional and National Context, Global Citizenship in Higher Education: Challenges and Strategies, and Innovative approaches and methodologies of GCED and Action Plan.

The target participants of the workshop included leaders, administrators (Deans and Vice-Deans), educators, and senior teaching staff from different higher education institutions in Vietnam.

After the four-day face-to-face training course, the online learning phase was conducted within three days from October 26-28, 2020 for participants to have more opportunities to discuss issues related to the global educational citizenship and best practices at their institutional level as well as gain access to lectures, reading materials and assignments.
