What is Global Schools?
Global Schools is an initiative led by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network - Youth Initiative (SDSN Youth) in support of UNESCO’s Global Action Program on Education for Sustainable Development (GAP-ESD).
“Empowering schools and teachers globally to educate children on the SDGs”
The vision of the program is to generate interest about sustainable development in schools in an effort to educate and engage students with the SDGs and to encourage them to prioritize the goals in their lifestyles, behaviors, education and professional careers as these goals provide framework for a better world that children could live in the future. The program aims to do this by transforming learning environments globally and making schools the hubs of education and leadership on SDGs, ultimately becoming vehicles for empowering and mobilizing students and young people to help implement the SDGs in their communities.
Integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into school settings.
Increase the capacities of educators and teachers to more effectively deliver education on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Provide youth with opportunities to engage with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the local level.
