Diversity

Diversity is defined as embracing people with different cultural, economic and political backgrounds and respecting the uniqueness of individuals. Promoting rational discussion and accepting people with different backgrounds is UNESCO HK GPC’s first step taken to achieve diversity. Here are community activities we committed in and supported.

In May 2021, GPC co-organised the “Beyond Culture Concert – Open Opportunity for Peace” with the Rotary Club at NAAC. Joined by multi-cultural singers and Rotary Club of Hong Kong City North together with District Governor of Rotary International 3450, the concert was held successfully and supported family and elderly of ethnic minorities. Below are the concert ceremony snapshots and promotional video.

“Wellness for Peace” is a series of activities co-organised by GPC, Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga Centre to help people nurture individual peace with wellness practices. In this programme, wellness masters from different countries will teach you ways to build individual peace within yourself through four wellness practices: Meditation, Yoga, Resilience Building and Taichi. Building individual peace is essential to all peacebuilders to build peace in the community.

The UNESCO Hong Kong Association Glocal Peace Centre (GPC) has been fostering youth learning with the Centre’s internship and volunteer programs for the past several years. We would like to take this opportunity to leverage the 8th Peacemakers’ Cultural Celebration (PCC) to offer a volunteering service opportunity to young people. “Volunteer for Peace” is a volunteering programme for students to have a “quick turn” learn-and-volunteer experience. This is a unique opportunity for students to take part in a three-part course to learn positive peace, develop leadership skills and learn skillsets to flourish in the “new normal”. Students will immediately apply their learning in volunteering their services to support the 8th Peacemakers’ Cultural Celebration “Action for Peace” programmes.
