Congratulations to five of our YAG members for successfully facilitating the global review workshop on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) held on May 9-11, 2016 in Chisinau, Moldova.

The workshop provided an opportunity for 25 young people from around the world to create an outcome document which lists down concrete recommendations of the youth towards achieving #GCED within the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) agenda.

Well done, YAGers. You are rockstars!

Work is ongoing on the shape of the new ‘Education Crisis Platform’ that will be launched at the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) in May 2016. UNICEF and partners have been working with a creative agency on the branding, and are keen to obtain your views and input on some of the proposed titles, as part of a re-naming exercise.

Given the breadth of the platform’s work, UNICEF is trying to find a title that is clear, memorable and compelling; one that helps create awareness and... support; something that will distinguish itself from the various other organisations, funds and groups active in this area.

Take the survey and let your voices be heard: Thank you.
