330 Advocates from 75+ countries join the Global Schools Advocates Program 2021-2022

The Global Schools Program, an initiative of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, welcomes the new cohort of Global Schools Advocates for 2021-2022. The Global School Advocates are teachers and educators who completed a free training course on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Through classroom lessons and school-wide activities, Advocates will promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ESD in school communities. These 330 Advocates are teachers and educators that work with K12 students in 75+ countries around the world.

The program’s vision is to create a world where every primary and secondary school student is equipped with the knowledge, values, and skills necessary to effectively respond to this century’s most significant challenges through ESD. These Advocates were selected for their commitment and passion for bringing the SDGs to K12 students and actively contributing their best practices to the global network.

The Global Schools Program and SDSN extend a warm welcome to all the Advocates. Please see the list of Advocates at this link and the represented countries below:
