B1. Youth Forum 1 for Cognitive Base on GCED
July 15 (Mon) (13:00 – 16:00)
Cognitive: knowledge and thinking skills necessary to better understand the world and its complexities
The three virtues of being a global citizen are to "confirm" the various issues that take place in the world, to "respect" people of different values, to "cooperate" people of different values, to "realize" the things I can do. The world defines and educates these people as future talents.
We are going to have time to listen to the young people from all over the world for the "cognitive domain". The events and accidents of the world we hear through the Internet and the media are easy to see, but the strengths, problems, and responsibilities of young people in the country can be different. To develop the cognitive domain, participants will be asked to prepare for the presentation on three topics
1. Please briefly introduce your country to young people from other countries and present three simple reasons (strong points) that we have to visit your country.
2. Among the problems that your country is experiencing, please present three things you would like other young people to know.
3. As young people of that country, please present three things you are responsible for and have to do to make a better home country.
We will have time to listen and discuss the vivid stories in each country that is unknown through the Internet and the media in the three themes above. Each country will have 15 minutes to present, 15 minutes to answer questions, total of 30 minutes.
B2. Youth Forum 2 for Socio_Emotional _ Base on GCED
July 17 (Wed) (09:00-12:00)
Socio-emotional: values, attitudes and social skills that enable learners to develop affectively, psychosocially, and physically and to enable them to live together with others respectfully and peacefully.
Six blind men were asked to determine what an elephant looked like by feeling different parts of the elephant's body. The blind man who feels a leg says the elephant is like a pillar; the one who feels the tail says the elephant is like a rope; the one who feels the trunk says the elephant is like a tree branch; the one who feels the ear says the elephant is like a hand fan; the one who feels the belly says the elephant is like a wall; and the one who feels the tusk says the elephant is like a solid pipe. A king explains to them: All of you are right. The reason every one of you is telling it differently is because each one of you touched the different part of the elephant. So, actually the elephant has all the features you mentioned.
We often make the same mistake as the blind above. There are even wars. A person who has a different opinion from me will not necessarily be wrong just because he or she is different from me. We usually talk only with people of our country. But young people from different countries come together in the youth rally and share our thoughts with an open mind, we will be able to choose a better life.
The topic of discussion will be finally announced on May 30. As an example of a topic, what do you need to do in your 20s? Do we have to marry? How much money should I earn to be happy? What are the criteria for choosing a job? What is the condition of my lover, spouse, or good friend? Why should we help others? And so on. We will have time to share various opinions and present.
B3. Youth Forum 3 for Behavioural_ Base on GCED
July 18 (Wed) (09:00-12:00)
Behavioural: conduct, performance, practical application and engagement.
The power of social media used by young people is very influential. We're going to get together about 100 young people who want to make the world a better place and send meaningful messages to my friends and neighbors. Discuss what we can do for the earth and engage in creative activities to promote it to the world through the SNS platform. We are already looking forward to what ideas will come out.
