UNESCO’s flagship publication on Global Citizenship Education now available in 8 languages

Two years after its first release, the Global Citizenship Education (GCED) Topics and Learning Objectives are now available in eight languages.

As part of its efforts to promote Global Citizenship Education (GCED), UNESCO supports Member States, teachers, and policy makers to foster citizenship and human rights education and empower learners to assume active roles to face and resolve global challenges and to become proactive contributors to a more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure world.

Global citizenship education programs can be challenging to design and implement, due to the complexity and richness of the concept, as well as the variety of contexts in which they are developed.

UNESCO has produced the Global Citizenship Education: Topics and Learning Objectives following the global dialogue between decision-makers, leading experts and innovative practitioners to offer pedagogical guidance on the implementation of GCED.

The guide is also a result of an extensive research and consultation process with experts from different parts of the world and was field tested by education stakeholders in selected countries in all regions to ensure its relevance in different geographical and socio-cultural contexts.

This flagship publication has been developed to reach as many individuals and organizations around the globe striving to embed GCED into their education programmes and systems. The Topics and Learning Objectives are now freely available online in UNESDOC in Arabic, English, French, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and now in Danish.

The latest edition in Danish has been produced through a co-publishing agreement with the Danish National Commission for UNESCO.
