Last year I presented at the GEC on education for the 21st Century. During this conference, I briefly mentioned the work that I do at the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education in Costa Rica and would like to invite you all to spend a week with us at the lovely UPEACE Campus during July 2013!
The course to be held is called 'Educating for the 21st Century', and it looks at how the world is changing at an extremely rapid pace, affecting the essence of how we learn, interact, and work. As educators, we are charged with creating learning experiences to equip our students for a future that is hard to visualize and impossible to predict. This week-long seminar is designed for educators working in formal and informal settings, within institutions and in grassroots community contexts. The Earth Charter will be presented and discussed as a unique educational framework for bringing values of global citizenship into educational processes.
It will cover the following topic areas:
In previous years we have had participants from Mexico, Guatemala, Venezuela, USA, Canada, India, Australia, Nigeria, Costa Rica, etc. This rich multicultural group serves for great discussions and exchanges!
If you are interested in more information, please visit our website centre.upeace.org, or write an e-mail to the Centre's Coordinator, Karen Visoná at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to getting to know some of you in lovely Costa Rica!
I was really impressed with your presentation from what I recall.... I'd love to do something like this one day. Hope some GEC members sign up!
