UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet)

Founded in 1953, the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network or ASPnet is a global network of more than 10.000 educational institutions worldwide in over 180 countries. This network aims to promote the ideals of UNESCO in schools by working in support of international understanding, peace, intercultural dialogue, sustainable development and quality education in practice.

 In accordance with UNESCO texts ratified by Algeria, , public or private, urban or rural, preschool, primary or secondary, technical or vocational or teacher training institutions may apply to join the ASPnet by addressing a request to the national coordinator of the country. This membership, once approved by UNESCO allows institutions to identify themselves as "Associated School of UNESCO". This title authorizes them, inter alia, to display on their panels and documents the UNESCO certificate and the ASPnet logo, to receive the UNESCO documentation they need and to create a "UNESCO Corner" in their libraries.

In return, schools recognized as UNESCO Associated Schools undertake to carry out, throughout the school year, innovative pedagogical and / or out-of-school activities aimed at raising pupils' awareness of one of the four following topics:

1-      current global issues and the role of the United Nations;

2-       education for sustainable development;

3-      peace and human rights;

4-       respect for religious and cultural diversity.

5-      These activities can take the form of celebrations of international days (International Day of Peace, Human Rights, Women ... etc.), Awareness campaigns (to the preservation of the environment, respect for minorities Religious ... etc.) or student expeditions to historical sites of universal value.

The Algerian network of Associated Schools of Unesco now has nine public and private schools divided among the three levels of education.
