Global Citizenship Education clearinghouse expanded after conference on preventing violent extremism through education

The UNESCO Clearinghouse on Global Citizenship Education (GCED), hosted by The Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding, now includes more than 300 tools and resources on the prevention of violent extremism through education and on education about the Holocaust and other genocides.

The expansion of the GCED Clearinghouse was one of the key follow-up commitments made at the UNESCO International Conference on the Prevention of Violent Extremism through Education: Taking Action, held in New Delhi, India on 19-20 September 2016.

The GCED Clearinghouse includes written documents and audio-visual materials including policy, pedagogy, and academic papers, teaching and learning materials and other relevant resources. The site is aimed mainly at policy-makers, planners, curriculum developers, researchers, practitioners, educators, parents and learners as well as the general public.

For more information on UNESCO’s actions on the prevention of violent extremism through education or education about the Holocaust and other genocides, visit their dedicated websites.
