With funding from the Hainan Provincial Government, People’s Republic of China, UNESCO organizes the first Regional Capacity Development Workshop for ASPnet National Coordinators in Sub-Saharan Africa, in order to enable countries in the region to reinforce the work of their member institutions and to develop the potential of ASPnet to drive educational innovation.br /br /In May 2018, following a two-year consultation process, UNESCO has published a new Guide for National Coordinators which clearly defines the mission and objectives of ASPnet in the context of the SDG agenda, as well as the rules and regulations concerning membership and quality assurance. br /
The UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) links educational institutions across the world around a common goal: to build the defences of peace in the minds of children and young people. The over 11,500 ASPnet member schools in 182 countries promote UNESCO’s values and principles and work in support of international understanding, peace and sustainable development. ASPnet contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a particular focus on target 4.7 of SDG 4 - Education 2030, on global citizenship education (GCED) and education for sustainable development (ESD).
