Education for a Culture of Peace and Sustainable Future I

30 teachers from 15 dzongkhags and 29 schools came together to make a difference by attending a special workshop on Education for a Culture of Peace and Sustainable Future. Organized by the Bhutan National Commission for UNESCO and funded by Korean National Commission for UNESCO, the workshop took the participants through Education for International Understanding. Some of the important areas covered were: 
1. EIU pedagogies
2. Learning to Live together
3. Global and Local awareness
4. Child Rights
5. Waste Management
6. Education for Sustainable Development
7. Heritage in Young Hands
8. GNH and EIU Integration

The workshop went live for 3 days where participants were given information and the skills to implement the knowledge acquired in their schools. On the third day, Aum Sangay Zam, Education Secretary, graced the closing ceremony.
The teachers would take the workshop to schools through SBIP and formation of UNESCO clubs. 
* A comprehensive report by Mr. Udhim Subba, VP of Pakshikha MSS, Chukha, would come up soon. Till then pardon me for the vague report.
