On 28 July 2016, Actions for change in partnership with Education Cameroon (EduCam), Noela Lyonga Foundation and Youths Engaged for Development (YED) organized a one Day Capacity building workshop on the Global Citizenship Education.
The workshop which brought together youths from some parts of Cameroon was aimed at educating them especially those in rural communities on the United Nations Global Citizenship Education and its importance in solving the problems of the world. Speaking during the Workshop, The workshop Initiator Mr.Ntui Oben Obi, President of Actions for Change Cameroon who participated in the Second Youth Leadership Workshop in Busan, Republic of Korea shared his experience in Korea and emphasized on the introduction of GCED in all aspects of the society. The workshop had inspirational presentations from Mr. Takang Kelly Tabe-Coordinator of Education Cameroon (EduCam), Mr. Ngale David-coordinator of Youth Engaged for Development (YED), Mr. Teboh Sylvanus-Coordinator of the University of Buea Debate Club and interim National Vice president, Cameroon Debate Association, Mr. Awanto Ernest, Miss Noela Lyonga of Noela Lyonga Foundation and many others. The various speakers emphasized the need for young people to take actions towards the implementation of Global Citizenship education in their respective communities. In a more practical way, participants were divided into different groups to work on different topics which were then presented towards the close of the workshop. The various topics treated during the breakout session included: climate change, Culture, Peace, Entrepreneurship and capacity building. All these were looked at on a global level.

The workshop ended on a positive note with a general call for more workshops in all parts of the country. It is worth nothing that participants at the workshop were able to create a Cameroon GCED Network.
