Acknowledging the critical importance of preparing educators towards a Culture of Peace, APCEIU has been organizing capacity-building training workshops on Education for International Understanding (EIU) for educators. The Asia-Pacific Training Workshop on EIU (APTW), APCEIU’s flagship training programme, has been held annually since 2001. Arranged as a ‘Training of Trainers (TOT),’ APTW aims to enhance the participants’ knowledge, skills, and commitment to EIU and further enable them to competently design and implement EIU (training) activities in their local and national contexts.
This year’s APTW, under the subtitle of “EIU, Fostering Global Citizenship,” will provide a platform where participants learn, experience, share and reflect upon various issues on education to foster global citizenship in today’s complex, interconnected society. Fostering global citizenship is one of the three key priorities of UN’s Global Education First Initiative (GEFI) and is in line with EIU’s core values in terms of the promotion of learning to live together to forge more just, peaceful, and inclusive societies.
