The Centres of Asia Pacific Excellence, in association with Education New Zealand and SIEBA, present Step up to the world – Tū māia ki te ao a three-day forum on global citizenship education in September in Auckland.

We’ll start in the afternoon of day one and spend two full days of plenary and workshop sessions with a broad range of speakers from across the education sector and beyond including Dr Rosemary Hipkins, Shamubeel Eaqub, and Bridget Williams.

You are invited to step up to the world at a forum that brings together expertise and practice in global citizenship education.

  • You will be equipped with tools and strategies

The forum will support you to:

  • Explore ways to honour our commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi through GCED
  • Make links between the CAPEs GCED framework, the NZ Curriculum, the International Education Strategy, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Explore the role of GCED in Asia Pacific contexts
  • Understand the benefits of GCED to both local and international students
  • Learn how to implement GCED in your school or organisation
  • Reinvigorate your international education marketing strategy through GCED
  • Connect and share best practice with local and international experts and practitioners
  • Connect GCED with careers
