Global Citizenship Education Discussion Papers

About the Discussion Papers

A panel discussion on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) was held at the National Library in Wellington in August 2019.

Opened by Hon Jenny Salesa, Associate Minister of Education, the event featured the perspectives of five well-respected academics and thinkers.

Each was commissioned to write a paper discussing GCED from their own unique position, ideas and experiences. Perspectives range from Māori, Pasifika, academic and education to youth. All explore GCED from a New Zealand context, and consider approaches to GCED that may contribute to addressing the world’s pressing issues.

In the videos below left, each speaker gives a brief outline of their presentation.
