Activities of the Global Education Week
It’s our world, let’s take action together!
The Global Education Week is an annual World Wide awareness raising initiative unfolding during the third week of November. It is a call to rethink our world together, using Global Education as a tool for solidarity and change and contribute for a more and sustainable and equitable world. In preparation and during the Week solutions are shared to rethink our habits and ways of living, spending and consuming but also finding new ways of education and socialisation.
The Global Education Week relates to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) which aim to eliminate extreme poverty, reduce inequalities and combat the threat of climate change by 2030.
