Established by the United Nations in1953, the
UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet)
includes almost 7,800 member schools and
institutions in 175 countries.
UNESCO schools are located in all regions of
the world – Africa, Asia, the Pacific, the Arab
States, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean,
and the U.S. – in differing cultural, economic
and social systems, at various stages of
development, and in rural and urban areas.
The network provides a forum for the promotion
of UNESCO ideals as well as global citizenship,
social justice, student leadership and
provincial, national, and international
networks. A publication created by the Canadian
Commission for UNESCO (CCU), Key Words for
Participating in the UNESCO Associated Schools
Project Network, provides a full
description. The document is
available at the
Canadian Commission for UNESCO: Associated
Schools Project Network website.

and promote democracy, human rights, solidarity
and mutual understanding through curricular and
extra-curricular projects related to:
- World concerns and the role of the United Nations
