Dear Sir or Madam

We are excited to invite you to be part of Time Project 2017.

A 24 hour learning marathon starting at 00:00 GMT on Time Day Friday December 8th 2017 for one day throughout all time zones, the youth of the world will connect through TIME PROJECT. TIME offers a wide variety of inquiry based learning activities such as video conferencing, the online research game ‘Unite the Nations’, a Model United Nations Video Conference Simulation, a case study in community sustainability through CUSO- International’s EsArtes/Suchitoto Initiative, and Classroom Twinning – Blogging Activities. Since 1995 well over 1000 schools and youth groups from 80 countries have participated in the Time Project all on a single day – Time Day.

During Time 2017 the Time participants from around the globe will learn about and share findings centered on the topics of Racial Inequalities, Food Distribution and Waste, Free Speech Vs Hate Speech as well as a Case Study on local development through youth action and the arts. There will be a look at the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) with a special focus on (SDG 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production, SDG2 Zero Hunger) As well as an examination of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights specifically Article 19th that enshrines the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference. As well a series of ICC Mock Trials will also take place as organized through our TIME Partners at World Class Schools.

This is our Time was originally initiated for the UNESCO Associated Schools Project and was one of their first ASPnet flagship projects. Today Time is currently organized by Time Project Headquarters in Canada in co-operation with Taking It Global for Educators whose mission is to empower youth to understand and act on the world’s greatest challenges. Travel the world without packing your suitcase or the need for a passport! Grab the opportunity to learn from and about other young people in an innovative project based learning environment!
