Global Peace Foundation’s Character and Creativity Initiative collaborated with the Department of Education Division of Pangasinan for an orientation and workshop on Changing School Culture Through the Character and Creativitiy Initiative. The summit was attended by more than 100 educators on October 28-29, 2017 at Bayambang Events Center, Bayambang Pangasinan.
Character and Creativity Initiative (CCI) works to integrate character and creativity training into all aspects of school culture towards the development of the whole person. Global competencies such as character, critical thinking, creativity, entrepreneurship, leadership, collaboration, and problem solving must be prioritized in education to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive and interdependent global society.
The workshop was headed by Dr. Dinah F. Mindo, Chair of Global Peace Foundation's education division in the Philippines and former Regional Director of the Department of Education.
The workshop was designed to advance education outcomes by emphasizing character, creativity, and moral and innovative leadership in schools.
