Spring Updates from IVECA

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

On March 23rd, IVECA’s 2023 UN Water Conference Side Event, Global Citizenship Education for Clean Water and Cleaner Energy was held to great success thanks to our esteemed panel of speakers and wonderful guests (both in person and online). IVECA and collaborators emphasized the role of global citizenship education in improving the lives of people around the world through their access to clean water and energy. Multi-stakeholder representatives who participated from around the world expressed their passion and support for IVECA’s Global Citizenship Education Partnership initiative.


Including the public (Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea to the United Nations, India Mission to the United Nations Academic Impact, UNESCO) and private sectors (EcoFlame and Dohwa Engineering), academia, and civil society (CoNGO, NGOCELL and The Ocean Cleanup), Multi-stakeholder representatives who participated from around the world expressed their passion and support for IVECA’s Global Citizenship Education Partnership initiative.


As the Spring semester has begun, IVECA and university partners in the United States (Lehigh University and Long Island University - Post), India (Shobhit University) and South Korea (Kyunghee University) are already taking action. Partner schools have started their intercultural virtual exchange, developing their sense of global identity through intercultural collaboration and communication and working on local environmental issues.


Joining IVECA from China, India, Tunisia. South Korea, and Costa Rica, K-12 students have also started their journey in global citizenship. This past week, they embarked on their first task of the semester- sharing their unique perspectives on their home countries and cultures while learning about those of their partners!


Please enjoy this recap of IVECA’s UN Water Conference Side Event! We look forward to your continued support of our mission and follow our students’ growth into proactive, empowered global citizens!
