Inspired from the success of the public forum on Global Citizenship Education held in line with the celebration of the 60th year of AFS Intercultural Programs Philippines (AFS IPP) in August 2017, the organization is pleased to announce an upgraded educational event that will feature in-depth discussions on the role of global citizens in nation building involving students, educators and other public attendees—the AFS IPP Congress 2018.

The decision to conduct the AFS IPP Congress is centered on the results of the series of educator assemblies held throughout the country and the purpose of gathering students, educators and other citizens from various sectors to create awareness on how intercultural learning, global citizenship, volunteerism, and leadership play vital roles in shaping responsible citizens to create a progressive society.

The congress will be hosted by Foundation University, Siliman University, St. Paul University, and the Province of Negros Oriental through the Negros Oriental Center for Culture and Arts in Dumaguete City on August 30 to September 2, 2018.
