Glocal Peace Centre

UNESCO HK Glocal Peace Centre (GPC) is a project of the UNESCO Hong Kong Association.

We support UNESCO’s vision of ‘building peace in the minds of men and women’ through Actions for Peace projects that promote community awareness and commitment towards peace making for a better world.

As we live in a highly interconnected and interdependent world, we believe Peace and harmony must be treasured and maintained. Each person should do their part in reaching out as peace makers in their community and environment. Through peace education and youth collaborative/exchange programmes, we envision a diversity of people coming together to co-create a better world!
