We would like to invite you to participate in an interactive workshop exploring the concept of education diplomacy and its role in the development of education systems and practice globally.
According to ACEI, Education Diplomacy is an emerging concept broadly defined as the “cross-disciplinary, intercultural sharing of theories, ideas, and concepts that advance the landscape of education and, thereby, enhance human development.”
If you want to know more, or wish to share your opinion (both positive and critical) on education diplomacy you are most welcome to attend!
The workshop takes place in AG3/4 (Ellen Wilkinson) on April 9th at 12pm:
