Education Diplomacy Day
07 October 2014 -
WMO Building, Geneva
Education diplomacy is the cross-disciplinary, transnational sharing of theories, ideas, and concepts that advance education.
[Update] Please check the photo gallery from the Education Diplomacy Day in Geneva. Presentations from the event are available via links in the programme below.
Education diplomacy uses the skills of diplomacy to guide educators toward a deeper level of understanding, engagement, and practice in order to advance sustainable change across education systems. The Center for Education Diplomacy, an initiative of the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), is leading an effort to shape this emerging concept.
On 7 October 2014, ACEI and DiploFoundation hosted the Education Diplomacy Day, bringing together educators, diplomats, international and development organisation staff members, and others concerned with education diplomacy issues. Through panel presentations and discussions, the event raised awareness of education diplomacy and provided the opportunity to further develop the concept and practice. In the coming months, ACEI and Diplo will also work together to develop and run an online course on Education Diplomacy.
