CONFERENCE RATIONALE

16th World Conference in Education

The World Council for Curriculum and Instruction (WCCI) is a transnational educational organization committed to advancing the achievement of a just and peaceful world community through collaboration in curriculum and instruction projects; dialogs on educational and social issues of a global nature; the exchange of ideas, concerns and solutions to problems; and person-to-person contacts and professional relationships. It is a non-governmental organization (NGO) of the United Nations in consultative status with UNESCO and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). WCCI has organized the triennial World Conferences since 1974 until the world conference held in 2006 at Manila Hotel, Manila, Philippines when it became biennial conference. A founder suggested that the WCCI 16th World Conference should be held in California since WCCI originated in this state of the United States (1970) and the Secretariat is in San Diego. Furthermore, as we ponder on the theme of the conference, California is one state of the United States that leads in many movements that are directed and/or related to the Culture of Peace and the Care of Planet Earth. It is always in the forefront of progressive ideas. Lawmakers also lead in passing laws such as “Assembly Bill 32: Global Warming Solutions Act, which set the 2020 greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal into law.”
