Welcome to UNESCO-APNIEVE
UNESCO-APNIEVE is a not-for-profit educational organisation established in South Australia in May 2000 to foster well-being among educators, community members, youth, and business owners, and to foster the values needed for a harmonious, equitable and sustainable society. The APNIEVE network of educators was established in the Asia Pacific region by UNESCO in 1996 to promote values in education for peace, human rights, democratic citizenship and sustainable development. Since that time the Australian chapter of UNESCO-APNIEVE has expanded its activities to the broader community and to publishing works related to our mission and values.
UNESCO-APNIEVE conducts teacher and community workshops, develops learning resources, publishes written works, conducts research and personal and professional development, and consults to educational institutions, government and community agencies on a wide range of human development and values-related issues. The key focus is fostering individual and collective well-being on all levels, for the full development of the whole person, who is empowered to participate fully and equally as a family and community member, worker, teacher or learner, and an active citizen.
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 well-being may follow, including civic responsibility, ecological stewardship and the preservation of our cultural and natural heritage.
APNIEVE conducts community meetings, networks, webinars and workshops for information exchange to facilitate the development of future community leaders and responsible citizens.
