FCC Partners with UNESCO-MGIEP for #KindnessMatters Campaign

The Foundation for Community Consensus (FCC) has been working primarily with young people in India, running fellowships and workshops for young students to promote values of participation and active citizenship. In recognition of this work, UNESCO-MGIEP has made FCC a partner in its #KindnessMatters Campaign, which aims to mobilize youth all over the world to fulfil the SDGs.

The UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP) is UNESCO’s category 1 Research Institute that focuses on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4.7 towards education for building peaceful and sustainable societies across the world. 

There are 1.8 billion young people in the world today, the highest population of youth ever to have existed in history. Despite their sheer size and incredible stories of change, youth continue to be sidelined in any and all major initiatives towards development. To inspire social change through their stories, UNESCO-MGIEP’s #KindnessMatters Campaign will inspire young people to carry out transformative acts of kindness to tackle the SDGs and create a positive culture of kindness. You can read more about the #KindnessMatters Campaign of UNESCO-MGIEP and find the FCC’s logo as an official partner here on UNESCO website.

FCC in its proud role as an official partner hopes to inspire youth in India to become more active citizens in their community and their country, and move closer towards achieving the SDGs in their respective societies. For more information on how FCC plans to achieve this objective, refer to our website about Summer Fellowship in India.
