The New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO invites nominations for participation in the APCEIU Asia-Pacific Youth Caravan.
Recognizing the critical importance of empowering future leaders for the
promotion of Culture of Peace, the Asia Pacific Centre of Education for
International Understanding (APCEIU) presents a visiting programme for
tertiary students in the Asia-Pacific region. APCEIU will hold its 1st Asia-Pacific
Youth Caravan to integrate major themes of EIU including intercultural
understanding and diversity awareness into a nine-day visiting programme
exclusively for undergraduate and graduate students. It features a study visit
to UNESCO World Heritage site in Seoul and other places of interest such as
the DMZ. The programme is designed to amplify participants’ motivation,
confidence and competence so as to enable them to learn from one another
and to make best use of opportunities that arise through the newly-built
networks they will establish with fellow youth in the region.
Participants must be under the age of 28, fluent in English and
currently enrolled in a tertiary institution.
To be considered, please submit your completed application form to the New
Zealand National Commission for UNESCO before Wednesday the 27th of
July. Please note that only in-country expenses will be covered by APCEIU.
Partial funding towards flights may be available.
