The WCCI is a transnational educational organization committed to advancing the achievement of a just and peaceful world community through collaboration curriculum and instruction projects: dialogues 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) in Special consultative status with the Economic Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations and UNESCO.

“Role of Education for Global Citizenship in Promoting Social, Economic and Environmental Justice”

The purpose of this conference is to inspire and engage educators and researchers around the world in an exploration of the processes and effects of global education in advancing economic, social and environmental justice by way of training and producing global citizens who are informed, sensitive, competent and active members of their local and global communities, who take part in the global governance process, who seek sustainable and just solutions to global problems, and who advocate policy changes for the attainment of a just world. Scholarly discussions and exchange of ideas are critical to bringing about the dynamic educational transformation needed for creating a more impactful global society.
