Especially for Teachers


Introduction and index of world class goals for the citizens of the world – what is it to me?

Background of the material 
The book is published by the Danish UNESCO School Network, Associated Schools Projects (ASP) and Ungdomsbyen (Youth Town), and supported by Danida’s Information Grant.

The ASP network being a part of UNESCO, and UNESCO being a part of the United Nations (UN), the material introduces the new Global Goals and other relevant aspects of the work done by those organizations. The main focus, however, is on the work done by the ASP schools. The book is also supposed to be an introduction to some of the focus areas of the UN, UNESCO and ASP, and what they mean and how they work together.

  • The rights of children and young people
  • International cooperation

Target group 
Danish and foreign students ages 14 to 18 and their teachers and interested parties 



The book 
The material is a book of 48 pages. The book is printed in 4000 copies and has been sent to about 40 Danish ASP schools. Besides, free copies have been sent to all primary schools and their libraries. Class sets of the book can be found at the Danish UCC centers (Local centers of teaching materials).

The book can be downloaded on this page in a Danish and an English pdf version.

The home page 
In relation to the book a great deal of inspirational material has been produced. It can be accessed on this page. Below is an index list of the contents of this material. From the index there are links to each chapter/section.

  • Section a in each chapter is identical to one of the book’s eight chapters.
  • Section b and c contain additional articles, pictures and videos, and suggestions for exercises, activities and courses related to the theme of the chapter.
  • Section d contains suggestions for international cooperation projects in relation to the individual themes.

As the material is to be used in connection with international cooperation, a good deal of the links are from English-language sources/materials. Some of the suggestions for international cooperation are only in English.


Using the material  
The material is particularly relevant to Danish, English, History, Geography and Social Studies, and courses across the curriculum such as projects, theme weeks and the like.

It is hoped that the material will be an inspirational catalogue for theme weeks and projects.
