In line with our sworn commitment at Aid for Rural Education Access Initiative- AREAi to provide lifelong learning opportunities for young people, we are pleased to announce the introduction of the project; EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FORUM under our ‘Skills for Life’ Program.
Borne out of the need for young people to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to shape a sustainable future, this practical-based, hands on interactive forum with its break-out sessions shall creatively engage children in the primary and secondary levels of education on thematic areas such as Climate Change, Global Citizenship Education, Peace, Cultural Diversity, Biodiversity, Sustainable Lifestyles, Sustainable Urbanization, Disaster Risk Reduction, Poverty Reduction, Gender Equality, Water and Health Promotion. The overarching objective remains to sustainably supplement elementary education available to young children with appropriate skills that enrich their knowledge, promote creativity, encourage innovation, motivate their ambitions and broaden their understanding on salient sustainable development issues towards becoming active global citizens, essential actors of community development and societal transformation.
Ultimately, learners would be equipped with skills & knowledge needed to embrace diversity, counter violent extremism with positive contribution towards building and maintaining peaceful and inclusive societies as responsible global citizens. The first edition of the project kick starts formally in month of January, 2016.
