IAP SEP organized the Meeting of Working Group on Fusion of One Belt One Road (OBOR) Civilizations Curriculum Design during the National Science & Technology Fair 2018 at the National Science Museum of Thailand
Inter-Academy Partnership on Science Education Programme (IAP SEP) organized the Meeting of Working Group on Fusion of One Belt One Road (OBOR) Civilizations Curriculum Design on August 24th, 2018 at National Museum of Thailand in Bangkok during the National Science and Technology Fair 2018.
The objective of holding this meeting was to review the resources, materials and identify the gaps. The working group also deliberated on the way forward and strategies for implementing the Curriculum in the OBOR region. President ECOSF Prof. Dr. Manzoor Hussain Soomro participated was invited and participated in the meeting as the Member of Global Council of IAP SEP.
The working group has developed three modules on land silk road, maritime silk road and architecture. This curriculum aims to demonstrate that no one civilization is superior to another and each has benefited from interactions through trade and travel from others and science is universal. It is envisaged that this curriculum will infuse spirit of peace and friendship in our young of all races and human beings are all one under the skin.
The idea of development of such a curriculum for school kids is to inculcate peace and harmony through evidence based science education for children in the light of the current conflict and increase in violence in societies, and terrorism resulting in atrocities and displaced persons.
It is pertinent to mention here that ECOSF is contributing to the development of this curriculum in collaboration with IAP SEP. The last working group meeting was organized by the ECOSF in collaboration with IAP SEP in Islamabad, Pakistan on April 9-10, 2018, where the working group members presented this curriculum based on the framework while highlighting the different aspects of scientific discoveries along the OBOR countries.
