5.Why did we create this project?
For the past eight years, we have been actively engaged in global and collaborative projects. As educators, who try to bring the world to our classrooms, we could not imagine another school year without global partnerships. Expanding our students’ horizons, creating our own PLNs and global learners and citizens who are aware of global issues are the main reasons why we have created a new global project. If you want to check our previous global projects, check the following websites “Sustainable Consumption Project“, ” Be the Change, Take the Challenge 1819“, “Be the Change, Take the Challenge”, and “The Universe is Made of Tiny Stories“.
Besides, we feel passionate about global connections and want to help you connect with schools from all over the world. We believe that such open, free of charge and flexible projects may transform education and create a more just and equitable society.
