The Review Meeting for Draft Development and the Preparatory Meeting for Piloting was held in Geneva, Switzerland on 14-15 August 2017. National experts from each of the four beneficiary countries –the Kingdom of Cambodia, Colombia, Mongolia and Uganda – and staffs from UNESCO International Bureau of Education (IBE) and Asia-Pacific Centre of International Understanding (APCEIU) gathered for the meeting.

At the beginning of the meeting, Dr. Utak Chung, Director of APCEIU, mentioned that “through the devotion and endeavors made by the four countries and IBE, our project could bear fruits. The APCEIU will continue to vigorously support mainstreaming GCED in the four countries.” 
In response, Dr. Mmantsetsa Marope, Director of IBE, said, “we are here together to learn from the experience and build a global public good. Through this project, we foresee the participating countries to become ‘best practice countries’ of GCED.”

During the two-day meeting, delegates of the four countries presented the progress achieved in process of developing draft curricula. Based on the country-specific contexts and demands, the outcomes of the curricula vary by country: 
- Cambodia: GCED-integrated national curricula in history and moral-civic subjects
- Colombia: GCED teachers’ guidelines
- Mongolia: GCED manual for teachers
- Uganda: GCED teaching and learning materials

In the session of designing pilot programmes, IBE introduced key guiding principles and strategies of piloting and monitoring processes. Especially, there was a set of practical activities provided by IBE so that the participants were able to enhance their understanding about piloting processes and help them refine their piloting plans. With the draft curricula developed, each country plans to implement their own pilot in the 2nd half of the year.

The 2nd Phase of GCED Curriculum Development & Integration has officially kicked off with the International Bureau of Education(IBE-UNESCO) as well as the four partner countries(Cambodia, Colombia, Mongolia and Uganda)from 22-24th March at APCEIU GCE Hall.

Delegates from Cambodia, Colombia, Mongolia and Uganda shared the progress made during the 1stphase in setting up the GCED Curriculum Development & Integration Committee and carrying out a needs assessment and situational analysis of its curriculum.

The four countries proposed their 2nd phase action plan, which elaborated specific details and relevant information to fulfil the following goals: First, to integrate global citizenship into the curriculum and/or produce GCED materials according to their needs, and second, to conduct a pilot test of the output.

The kick-off meeting was successful with the enthusiastic participation of partner countries and IBE-UNESCO. This meeting will provide assistance in setting out a clear path for the year ahead. Also, it will aid further cementing every stakeholder’s resolve in implementing the course of action they came to adopt. 

In addition, APCEIU had the opportunity to present its Policy Guide on Global Citizenship Education to gain feedback from the participants. The draft guide, which is due to be published later this year, is expected to serve as a frame of reference for policy makers. The main contents of the draft guide aim to integrate and strengthen GCED in educational policies, strategies and plans.

In 2014, APCEIU developed the EIU multimedia education material, Angkor: The World Heritage of Cambodia.

This educational multimedia resource vividly recreates the World Heritage Sites of Cambodia via three-dimensional panoramic photography, allowing learners to explore the historic sites without having to visit the locations. This publication provides various pictures and descriptions on the Angkor site, Preah Vihear, Banteay Srei and Banteay Chhmar, which can facilitate EIU class on World Heritage.
To maintain continuity of the project last year, Bagan- Historic Sites of Myanmar, Cambodia has been selected as a target country of this year. This education material is the 3rd series of APCEIU’s EIU material development project on World Heritage.
APCEIU wishes this EIU material can promote global citizenship through understanding the World Heritage.
Angkor: The World Heritage of Cambodia is available online:
