SECRETARY OF EDUCATION BRIONES SPEAKS AT G7 SATELLITE EVENT ON GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP

  
Education Secretary Leonor Briones delivers a lecture at the G7 Satellite Event in the University of Bologna entitled Global Citizenship Education: The Role of Education in a Globalised World

The Honorable Leonor Magtolis Briones, Philippine Secretary of Education, delivered a lecture at the University of Bologna on 08 May 2017 regarding global citizenship education, wherein she explained that while concepts of global citizenship are fairly straightforward, the condition of the youth in developed countries differ from those in the developing countries; 90% of the global youth population or 1.3 billion young people in developing countries face a different context than those in the developed West, thus discussions on global inequality and global political and economic conflict must likewise be urgently addressed. Secretary Briones’ lecture was met with thunderous applause and a standing ovation from the very appreciative crowd.

The G7 Satellite Event also featured lectures and discussions with the Italian Minister of Education, University and Research, Valeria Fedeli; the Cambodian Secretary of State for Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, IM Koch; the Canadian Deputy Minister from the Ministry of Education of the Government of Ontario, Bruce Rodrigues; the OECD Secretary-General’s Special Advisor on Education Policy and Director for Education and Skills, Andreas Schleicher; and UNESCO-Venice’s Director Anna Luiza Thompson-Flores.END
