KNOW WHAT THE COUNCIL FOR GCED MEANS TO OUR MEMBER SCHOOLS
Cambridge International Co-Educational School
"To be the part of the Council for GCED means a lot to us and to our students. Our school is located in a rural area, where the students do not get much exposure to the everyday changing modern world. To make our students aware of the different issues at both the local and global levels, through being a part of global citizenship education ecosystem. Council for GCED is fulfilling our needs. To make our students, leaders of tomorrow, we have to work on them and with them today and nurture them in a way that they can think and act both globally and locally for the society and humanity. To educate, engage and inspire our students to learn and understand the society at both the local and global levels, the Council for GCED provides us with an opportunity to fulfill all this. We also want to empower our facilitators through engagement and continuous professional development (CPD) to shape future-ready young global citizens."
Essar International School
"Knowledge has no boundaries. Fine intellectuals don’t limit knowledge within the periphery of a region. Instead, they try to acquire, decipher and apply knowledge to kindle imagination and innovations in different domains or pursuits, and thus work for the common good. Qualities like empathy, responsibility, tolerance, and civic sense cannot be instilled or inculcated by mere discussions and talks. Only practicing them will help them remain ingrained in our minds forever. Amidst the social and political barriers, our young generation needs to initiate the necessary steps and mould themselves in a way that makes the world a better place to live in. We at EIS, believe that by being a part of the Global Citizenship Foundation's Council for GCED, our students will gain insight and an opportunity to explore the global curriculum and attain knowledge to obtain above objectives. More importantly, practicing 100 Acts of Global Citizenship will help them build a community that stands for humanity."
Him Academy Public School
"The Council for GCED provides a platform to promote GCED themes of Peace, Compassion, Empathy, Rights, Citizenship, Environment, Sustainable Development and Cultural Diversity. It is worth mentioning here that Him Academy Public school is already promoting and implementing the above stated GCED objectives through its SEVA programme. Being a member of the Council for GCED would help, lead and advance the Global Citizenship Education (GCED) movement. This will further facilitate us to collaborate with progressive educators and create opportunities for our school to interact and network with global leaders.
The Council for GCED through '100 Acts of Global Citizenship' provides the opportunities for organizational learning to undertake complex education challenges and sharing best practices in implementation of Global Citizenship Education in the classrooms. This will empower our school in determining, executing, and advancing age-appropriate Global Citizenship Education Curriculum. In collaboration, the SEVA program of the school and the 'Council for GCED' initiatives will prepare the students to be valuable global citizens of tomorrow."
MBS International School
"The school aims to implement the objectives of the Global Citizenship Foundation and the Council for GCED to provide ample opportunities for students’ and teachers' participation so as to assume active roles, locally as well as globally, in building more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure societies and develop skills and attitudes which may help them to accommodate in rapidly changing world of a new millennium.
As part of the Council for GCED, we will create opportunities to collaborate with cluster schools to design distinctive academic programmes, innovative teaching methodologies and participate in the ‘100 Acts of Global, Citizenship’ school challenge. We aim to empower our students to grow as individuals with strong, open, discerning minds with a global perspective preparing them to make a mark in the Global Village, that the world has come to be today. In this context, our international collaboration with different countries of the world, have been aimed towards empowering our student community.
Our school looks forward to participating in teacher leadership and continuous professional development programs; workshops; seminars and conferences towards actively advancing the Global Citizenship Education movement."
St. Thomas' School
"Education means empowering the youth to become active participants in the transformation of societies. Knowledge is limitless which can bring about a wave of revolution for a sustainable world. A truly wise mind crosses the boundaries to attain and impart knowledge. ‘Experience shared is knowledge gained’ and this ultimately leads to innovations and development. Global Citizenship is an ethos that enables us to reflect on the path we are taking and allows us to realize that measures need to be taken to improvise before it gets too late.
Being a member of the Council for GCED means gaining a transformative vision of how we can overcome various global and local challenges with education playing a crucial role in preparing learners to be proactive agents for change. The students and educators will be provided a worldwide platform gaining an insight to peace and tolerance resulting in the whole humanity living in harmony."
