2010 Regional Workshop on Education for Cultural Diversity


Critical to the successful delivery of “Learning to Live Together” (Delors Report, 1996), which Education for International Understanding (EIU) is anchored on, is endeavors and programmes to promote mutual understanding and democratic engagements across cultural diversity. Recognizing this importance of education for and through cultural diversity, APCEIU organized a semi-training workshop for school principals, entitled “Regional Workshop on Education for Cultural Diversity: Learning to Live Together in Asia and the Pacific”, which was held in Seoul, ROK, on 14-19 January 2010, and in collaboration with UNESCO Bangkok. The Workshop was designed to motivate school principals, and enhance their capacity, to try out innovative curriculums and programs to promote intercultural understanding and cultural diversity, in view of EIU towards a Culture of Peace, on the one hand, and of Inclusive Education, on the other. The Workshop was participated by 24 school principals from 18 countries in the Asia-Pacific region and led by a group of international experts. Through a series of similar workshops for educators of the UNESCO Member States and the on-going networks, APCEIU will continue to further develop and carry out the Programme that promotes education for/through cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue.
