Global Classroom - Partner

For UNICEF Canada, collaborations and partnerships are essential to the work we do in our Global Classroom program. These partnerships support our vision and mission to raise awareness of the importance of children’s rights in Canadian education settings. They help us advocate for policy change, and support the practical implementation of children’s rights pedagogy in Canadian schools. Our partnerships are essential to the success of our work.
