The event was organized for the representatives of UNESCO ASPnet from Perm, Izhevsk, Chelyabinsk, Magnitogorsk and Nizhny Tagil
The UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) was established in 1953. It links educational institutions across the world around a common goal: to build peace in the minds of children and young people. More than 12,000 members of ASPnet Project from 182 countries support the ideas of international understanding, peace, intercultural dialogue, sustainable development and quality education.
The UNESCO ASPnet, as a driver for innovation and quality in education, is recognized as an effective tool for reaching target 4.7 on Global Citizenship Education (GCED) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) of Sustainable Development Goal 4 - Education 2030.
"Children should be educated. The task of a teacher is to help children love their kindergartens, school, and people around them. Fostering patriotism must begin from cultivating these feelings. We must learn to love. Even those children who study at home should do it with pleasure. Our University study disabled students. They get work after graduation and help children with disabilities. The main thing is to teach children be generous, honest and build up their human qualities. It is difficult to overestimate the role of teacher." Nella Pruss National Coordinator of the UNESCO ASPnet in the Russian Federation
