Message from Julie Saito, ASPnet International Coordinator
Dear students and teachers,
Dear National Coordinators,
First of all, a very big thank you to all of you who have already sent us messages telling us about your situation, how you are dealing with being out of school and sending beautiful messages of solidarity, in a variety of forms, including text, video and art pieces.
We are proud to tell you that many of those feature on a
dedicated UNESCO web page
. We are also working on putting all your contributions on the ASPnet web site. Well done and keep it up!
In our newsletter's second issue, we would like to focus on giving you the latest update on UNESCO's Education response and new initiatives available to you, with a particular emphasis on the
#LearningNeverStops initiative. The newly established Global Coalition on Education has started this initiative in order to continually provide updated information on learning in the current pandemic.
We encourage you, our members, to lead by example and help spread valuable information, resources and to support as many students, teachers and parents as possible and invite them to be part of this community of solidarity and support in Education.
In this regard, we continue to celebrate international days and tell you about International Sports Day in this issue.
Let me take an opportunity to present the ASPnet team members through our team photo, which reflects our spirit and unity to stay
CONNECTed with you.
On behalf of the team, you will find a
video message from my colleague
Fouzia Belhami, whom many of you already know.
Stay safe, Stay connected.
