High Representative's Remarks at 'The Role of Transformative Education in Dealing with the Challenges of Our Times' | UNAOC
In a multicultural and multiethnic world, learning to live together with others has become more necessary than ever before against the backdrop of the rising populist rhetoric, racism, hate speech against minorities and xenophobic rant. This is where Global Citizenship Education fills the gap by providing the understanding, skills and values students need to cooperate in resolving the interconnected challenges of the 21st century, including climate change, conflict, poverty, hunger, and issues of equity and sustainability. It helps become active and responsible global citizens with a sense of belonging to a common humanity.
