Global Education

The UN Association of Finland's educational activities support the recommendations concerning education for international understanding by the UN and UNESCO. UNA Finland focuses on global citizenship education in its school visitation programme.

Global education is defined as education aimed at developing an understanding of the systems and decision-making processes of international bodies and increasing awareness of global social responsibilities. The Association aims for lasting results and permanent change in attitudes and practices with its global education programme.

UNA Finland does global education to increase awareness of the UN's activities, further general understanding of human rights, and support active citizenship. The goals of sustainable development are central principles in guiding UNA Finland's global education.

The main target audience is teachers, pedagogy students, and voluntary educators from member associations. UNA Finland focuses primarily on supporting teachers and instructors working with children and young people, pedagogy students, and supporting its member associations.
