What is Connecting Classrooms?

Understanding the big issues that shape our world has never been more important. Issues like climate change, gender equality, health & wellbeing and how to live sustainably affect – and connect – us all: wherever we are in the world.

Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning is an exciting new programme that supports schools across the globe to collaborate on and learn about these big issues.

It supports teachers and pupils to enhance and develop the confidence, skills, knowledge, values and attitudes they need to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world – and create positive change as part of a whole-setting approach to Learning for Sustainability.
