With Thanks….

Thank you to all teachers, administrators, UNESCO and Youth club leaders for your role in Time Project 2012. Together we connected students with one another from nearly every point in our world and across 5 continents.

Together we challenged perceptions about Human Rights and Social Justice issues and we tackled the environmental challenges of our day. Together we studied about one another’s  history , geography, social issues and entertainment and we co-operated in a friendly research competition.
Together we united for one moment in TIME and the youth of the world understood that for them “This Is Our Time” to stand up for rights around the world.

Thank you for your role , thank you for your efforts but most of all thank you for your TIME! Hope to see you once again for Time Project NOVEMBER 29th 2013.  And LIKE US ON FACEBOOK .

Dear friends of the Time Project,

The next edition of the Time Project will be organised on Friday April 16 and Saturday April 17.
The topic will be:  (ensure) Environmental Sustainability (MDG 7).
Think of ‘clean water’, ‘climate change’, (loss of) environmental resources’, ‘global warming’. And what can we do to make a difference today and for future generations?

Next to well-known activities such as videoconferencing and Unite the Nations, we will also be introducing a new activity: “Clean Water Day”.  If you are interested to know more about this activity, please let us know and we will send you more detailed information.

We also warmly welcome any suggestions you might have regarding the Time Project.
Looking forward to our continued cooperation.
