The Global Schools Program, welcomes the new cohort of Global Schools Advocates for 2022!

The Global Schools Advocates program equips teachers and educators with a free training course on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), a toolkit, and resources to transform pedagogy and promote sustainable development literacy in classrooms. Through classroom lessons and school-wide activities, Advocates will promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ESD in school communities.
