UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet)

The guide was developed by the Section of Education for Sustainable Development and the Unit for the UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) in UNESCO’s Division for Peace and Sustainable Development.

Over 11,500 educational institutions in over 180 countries are part of this unique network, established in 1953.
