Welcome to UNESCO-APNIEVE Australia
UNESCO-APNIEVE is a not-for-profit educational network established by UNESCO in the Asia Pacific region in 1996 to promote international education and values for peace, human rights, democracy, global citizenship and sustainable development through education.
UNESCO-APNIEVE Australia was established in May 2000 and was formally launched by the former Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Alexander Downer on 18 October 2002 in Adelaide, South Australia.
UNESCO-APNIEVE develops learning materials, conducts research and professional development for educators and consults to educational institutions on a wide range of values-related issues to promote peace, justice and sustainability. We have now established a Publishing House and also conduct Research, Professional Consulting and Tutoring Services.
We focus on Values for Integrated and Quality Education for personal and collective peace and sustainable human-centred development. The philosophy is consistent with that expressed in UNESCO-APNIEVE's sourcebook: Learning to Be, for the integrated development of the whole person so that personal and collective peace may follow, and responsibility for ecological stewardship and the preservation of our natural heritage.
We conduct meetings, conferences and workshops for information exchange and for the professional development of educators, leaders and administrators. APNIEVE draws on skills and expertise from many fields, to conduct collaborative research for integrated curriculum development and to develop educational resource materials and videos, to assist teachers in honing their skills for nurturing the development of future leaders and global citizens.
