UNESCO's Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet, coordinated by UNESCO headquarters in Paris) brings educational institutions worldwide together around common objectives: teaching children and young people the vital importance of defending peace and sustainable development.
Spread out over more than 180 countries, the 10 000 schools on the ASPnet do active work in favour of international understanding, peace, intercultural dialogue, sustainable development and high-quality education. Fundamental importance is given to Education for Global Citizenship and Education 2030.
As a laboratory of ideas, ASPnet develops, tests and disseminates innovative educational material which fosters the adoption of new approaches to education and vocational training based on UNESCO's values and central priorities.
In addition, ASPnet offers the possibility of exchanging experience, knowledge and good practices among schools, individuals, communities, policy-makers and society as a whole.
In Luxembourg, 13 primary and secondary schools are members of the UNESCO network of Luxembourg schools.
