45 Awareness Diversity Communication Solidarity Unity Peace Acceptance Respect Tolerance Non-judgemental What is International / Intercultural Understanding? Love

46 Why is it important to promote international/ intercultural understanding?

47

48 These approaches would help foster international/intercultural understanding with the aim to promote harmonious living in society.

49 UNESCO has also generated a Charter in order to achieve this same goal and is undertaking a number of global initiatives. Human Rights Declaration Article 26, Pragraph 2

50 The following objectives should be implemented in order to promote International Understanding among nations: l An international dimension and a global perspective in education at all levels l Understanding and respect for all people, their cultures civilizations/ values and ways of life l Awarness of the increasing global interdependance between people and nations l Abilities to communicate with others l Awarness of the rights and duties incumbent upon individuals, societies and nations

51 l Understanding of the necessity for international solidarity and cooperation l Readiness on the part of the individual to participate in solving the problems of his community, country and the world at large l Combining learning, training, information and action, international education should further the appropriate intellectual and emotional development of the individual l Education should stress the inadmissibility of recourse to war for purposes of expansion and domination l Education should contribute to International Understanding and strengthening of world peace and to the activities in the struggle against all forms of racialism, fascism and other ideologies that breed national and international hatred

52 Education should contribute to International Understanding and strengthening of world peace and to the activities in the struggle against colonialism and neo- colonialism in all their forms and manifestations, and against all forms of racialism, fascism, apartheid and other ideologies that breed national and racial hatred which are contrary to the purposes of our program’s objectives.

53 “ Millions of parents, teachers and children around the world are calling on their governments to provide free, good quality, basic education for all the world’s children. They are part of the Global Campaign for Education; we add our voice to their call” Nelson Mandela and GraÇa Machel, 2002 Nelson Mandela and GraÇa Machel, 2002
