3rd Annual AFS Asia-Pacific International Global Citizenship Education Forum “Global Citizenship Education: Essential for Employability & the 21st Century Workforce” will take place from 20 to 23 April 2017 in New Delhi, India.

AFS and the AFS Asia-Pacific Initiative (AAI) with the support of UNESCO New Delhi Office, are organizing this Forum to explore, understand and address the issues of our time that both hinder and help the efforts to advance the global citizenship education movement.

The third Annual AFS Asia-Pacific International GCEd Forum will connect educators, intercultural learning practitioners and researchers with corporations, governments, institutions, policy-makers and others in Asia-Pacific who have a stake in the future of the region to uncover the connections between global citizenship education and employability.

A distinguished group of international speakers will present insights into why intercultural skills and global citizenship are necessary in the 21st century workplace and why developing these competencies must go hand-in-hand alongside science, math, technology and engineering within our education systems. Together with the Forum participants, they will identify the latest methodologies, research, programming opportunities and strategies for joint actions that will raise awareness of the value of intercultural and global citizenship skills in the 21st century workplace for both learners and employers.

Early bird registrations are open until 1 March, while the final deadline for registrations is 14 April. More information about the program, speakers and registrations are available at the conference website here.
