Dear Sir or Madam
We are excited to invite you to be part of Time Project 2019.
A 24 hour learning marathon starting at 00:00 GMT on Time Day Friday April 12th 2019 for one day throughout all time zones, the youth of the world will connect through TIME PROJECT. TIME offers a wide variety of inquiry/project 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 2019 the Time participants from around the globe will learn about and share findings centered on the topics of Youth Exercising their Rights, Clean Water Issues, the Global Refugee Crisis, 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 6 Clean Water and Sanitation, and SDG 14 Life below Water) 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. In addition a series of ICC Mock Trials will also take place as organized
through our TIME Partners at World Class Schools.

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.
