AEC joins International Civil Aviation Day

Alternative Education Center joined the International Civil Aviation Day celebration on December 7, 2023, with the theme Advancing Innovation for Global Aviation Development. The purpose of International Civil Aviation Day is to help generate and reinforce worldwide awareness of the importance of international civil aviation to the social and economic development of countries and states. It also promotes the unique role of ICAO in helping countries cooperate and realize a truly global rapid transit network at the service of all mankind.

AEC students discussed degree programs and careers that would lead to working in the airplane industry and reflected on their interest in this field. They related the concept of flying to dreaming big for their bright future. Students played a card game to discuss dreams and aspirations despite experiences of challenges and abuse. They created stories reflecting future plans using story cubes. They then used an airplane coloring activity to identify and describe loved ones who would support them and fly with them as they strive to reach their dreams. Students discussed how the celebration and activities promote the global goal of decent work and economic growth.
