Deadline: October 31, 2015
The United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative (GEFI) is organizing a MENA regional advocacy workshop on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) for young people from 12 to 16 December 2015 in Amman, Jordan.
Organized in partnership with the Generations For Peace, the workshop aims to build the capacity of dynamic young leaders from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region to foster peace using the core components of GCED. The three-day advocacy training will build on the outcomes of the ‘Seminar on the Role of GCED in Fostering Youth Peace builders’, held at the United Nations headquarters in New York from 10-11 September 2015. At the Seminar, youth advocates, educators, experts, NGOs and international organizations explored the root causes and different forms of youth violence; identified aspects within GCED that could be used in preventing and building resilience to violence, hatred, intolerance and conflict; and learned from existing programs around the world for prevention of conflict and violence targeting youth.
Applicants should meet the following requirements:
- Between 18 and 24 years of age
- Minimum 2 years of experience in youth advocacy activities
- Knowledgeable in global citizenship education related issues and priorities
- Proven record of having influenced change at the local or national level
- Proficiency in spoken and written English
Travel and local expenses will be covered for all successful applicants.
How to Apply
Applications (in English or Arabic) for the Youth Advocacy Training must be received by 30 October 2015 (Midnight, EST), and successful applicants will be notified on 6 November 2015 (EST).
