The Council for Education in World Citizenship was founded in 1939 as an independent organisation dedicated to education for international understanding, for young people of all ages. Its mission is to develop and promote active citizenship involving students, teachers and other citizens in taking responsibility for our future.
A central focus of CEWC’s work is the annual Quass lectures, in memory of former CEWC Director Margaret Quass. The inaugural lecture was given by Christine Gilbert, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Schools, on the subject “Education and Citizenship: a 21st Century Challenge” on 28th February 2007 at 7:30 in the National Liberal Club, Whitehall Place, London. The lecture was presented in association with the UK National Commission for UNESCO and Kingston University School of Education.
