Taiwan happy to contribute to global citizenship education: VP
Taipei, March 21 (CNA) Vice President Chen Chien-jen said Tuesday that although Taiwan is not a member of the United Nations, it is very happy to help the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to promote global citizenship education.
Taiwan will participate in U.N. educational activities, providing its knowledge, experience and strength, Chen said during a meeting with UNESCO Chair in Global Learning and Global Citizenship Education Carlos A. Torres.
He told Torres that educational objectives promoted by the United Nations, including environmental protection, equality, peace, anti-corruption and democracy, are also areas valued by Taiwan's government.
He expressed the hope that Torres will take advantage of his visit to discuss and work with local schools, government agencies and non-government organizations to produce a feasible plan that can allow Taiwan to contribute to global citizenship education.
He also urged Torres to continue to support Taiwan's participation in UNESCO activities and to be a staunch friend of Taiwan in the international community.
In this era of globalization, borders between countries are becoming less apparent, he pointed out.
In such a global village, issues such as global warming, environmental sustainability, mutual respect between different cultures, peace between different races, human rights protection, refugee crises and poverty are cross-border matters to which citizens of every country should pay attention, he said.
