This presentation is a program summary report of webinar workshops on global citizenship education (GCED), transformative education, human rights and peace education, and instructional integration of these concepts in the basic education curriculum spearheaded by the Office of Curriculum and Instruction of the University of San Jose – Recoletos (funded by UNESCO APCEIU). Teachers participated in workshops, discussed social issues and sustainability concepts, applied active strategies relevant to GCED, and identified best practices to apply to teaching practice. The results of the program show a strengthened teacher commitment toward education for sustainable development through their intentional interdisciplinary approach to curriculum planning and implementation.
