Global citizenship education (GCED) is one of the strategic areas of work for UNESCO’s Education Programme (2014-2017) and one of the three priorities of the UN Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative (GEFI) launched in September 2012.

Global Citizenship Education equips learners of all ages with those values, knowledge and skills that are based on and instil respect for human rights, social justice, diversity, gender equality and environmental sustainability and that empower learners to be responsible global citizens. GCED gives learners the competencies and opportunity to realise their rights and obligations to promote a better world and future for all.

“Global citizenship education aspires to be transformative. Grounded in the belief that the most effective defences of peace are built in the minds of men and women, it seeks to empower learners with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that are needed to forge more just and inclusive societies, capable  of  resolving  existing  and emerging global challenges.”
