The UNESCO Asia-Pacific Regional Bureau for Education in Bangkok, Thailand, has taken up the task to promote GCED through a project that focuses on teachers who are key players in transferring appropriate values, knowledge and skills to their students. With support from the Korean Funds-in-Trust, one output of the project is this guide: Preparing Teachers for Global Citizenship Education: A Template.
This publication provides useful information on integrating GCED concepts, principles and activities into curricula and teaching practices covering a broad spectrum of issues and pedagogies. It contains exemplars illustrating how GCED can be integrated into various subject areas. Diverse resources and materials listed in the document also offer readers a wide range of references. Underscoring the pragmatic objective of this work is the need for teachers to become global citizens themselves.
