Although The Global Experience addresses a wide variety of topics, our projects, initiatives and activities all strive to meet at least one of the following four targets:
All global challenges can be overcome, it just requires cooperation and communication. We therefore arrange for young people from different cultures to work on educational projects together.
Within our projects we address the core principles of sustainable development, such as gender equality, social tolerance, environmental protection, justice and peace. The cooperation gives a broader picture of the world's interdependency: wherever we are and whatever we do, our actions not only concern us ourselves, but also have an impact on the lives of people elsewhere in the world.
Examples of projects relevant to Education for Sustainable Development:
The UN-Decade "Education for Sustainable Development"
For several years The Global Experience has been operating in line with the UN-Decade Education for Sustainable Development. Our international team participated in the World Conference on Education for Sustainable Development in Bonn in 2009, where we hosted a workshop on Education for Sustainable Development and the teaching-learning process in line with the UNESCO Assciated Schools Network. Since 2009 our international network has also twice been recognized as an official project of the UN-Decade Education for Sustainable Development in Germany.
