Rethinking Curricula Programme

UNESCO MGIEP will strengthen Member States and their systems of education to facilitate the integration knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values of peace and sustainable development and global citizenship within school and university curricula.

Our Activities

In order to move ahead with our partners to implement innovative strategies for rethinking education systems around the world, we take the lead on the following activities:

State of Education

UNESCO MGIEP will review the extent to which concepts of GCED and ESD are mainstreamed in national policies and curricula in 20 countries in Asia and the Pacific, with a particular focus on core subjects (mathematics, science, language arts, and social studies) at primary and secondary school levels.

Embedding project

The project aims to embed concepts of peace, sustainable development and global citizenship in textbooks of core subjects like Maths, Science, Language and Geography. International experts have developed a guidebook for textbook authors titled ‘Textbooks for Sustainable Development: A Guide to Embedding’.
