  3. UNESCO Schools Network

The UNESCO Schools Network includes students and teachers from over 11,500 schools in more than 182 countries. The network acts as a laboratory of ideas by experimenting with innovative teaching and learning approaches to address global challenges.

In Canada, the network is active in most provinces and territories and includes over 100 schools. Through local, national, and international projects and initiatives, teachers and students explore the following four thematic action areas:

  1. UNESCO’s mission and mandate and the Sustainable Development Goals

  2. Global Citizenship Education

  3. Education for Sustainable Development and Climate Action

  4. Indigenous Education and Reconciliation

Students learn to reflect on global challenges such as peace, climate action, human rights, cultural diversity, and sustainable development, while contributing to positive change in their own communities.
