Join us for a fascinating webinar exploring how UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP) has researched, designed and launched its 6-module series on global citizenship education covering terrorism, migration, governance, rights and duties, identity and violence. The curriculum was developed using MGIEP’s Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) framework, built on EMC^2: Empathy, Mindfulness, Compassion and Critical Inquiry.  Come explore how literature may enhance global citizenship.
