The global network of UNESCO Associated Schools provides a strong framework to promote Global Citizenship, through flagship projects, school partnerships, the sharing of good practices and ideas as well as countless other activities carried out at the school, national, regional and international level.
Thus, this online platform aims to be an effective vehicle for inspiring continuous interactions and partnerships among the Network beyond borders to increase understanding of global citizenship education and to strengthen its teaching and learning in support of sustainable development.
The first phase of “ASPnet in Action”, launched in 2013, was about learning and exchanging on biodiversity. More than 450 students and teachers from 83 countries mobilized to take action to preserve our Planet. A video summarising the many projects and activities undertaken can be viewed here.
The second phase builds on this previous experience, and now focuses on global citizenship, keeping in mind that, when acting together, locally and globally, we can achieve a common, sustainable future.
