The Asia-Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) will organize the 3rd Youth Leadership Workshop on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) from the 28th May to 3rd June 2017, in Jeju, Republic of Korea.
The five-day workshop aims to contribute achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Target 4.7, to foster global citizenship through education. While enabling participants to deepen their understanding of GCED, the workshop allows the young leaders to play a major role and become part of a wider network of youth leaders for GCED.

Participants must have a minimum of two years’ experience in youth activities, sufficient understanding of GCED issues and priorities, and proven experiences of influencing change at the local or national levels.
Travel and local expenses will be covered for all successful applicants (participants will be responsible for the domestic travel expenses and visa fees in their own countries.)
