The UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network

Founded in 1953, the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet), commonly referred to as UNESCO Associated Schools, is a global network of 10,000 educational institutions in 181 countries. ASPnet celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2013.

In order to translate UNESCO’s ideals into concrete action, UNESCO launched the Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) in 1953. ASPnet is a network of committed schools engaged in fostering and delivering quality education in pursuit of peace, liberty, justice and human development in order to meet the pressing educational needs of children and young people throughout the world.

ASPnet schools are ‘navigators for peace’ and agents for positive change:

  • They are instrumental to achieving Education for All as expressed in the six Dakar goals adopted by the World Education Forum, 2000;
  • Work towards the United Nations Millennium Development Goals;
    Contribute to the implementation of UNESCO’s strategies and programmes in education, science, culture and communication;
  • Serve as laboratories of ideas on innovative approaches for quality education for all; and
  • Translate the four pillars of education for the 21st century -- learning to know, learning to do, learning to be and learning to live together—into good practices of quality education.
