THE EQUATOR PROJECT
The world in your classroom
EQUATOR wants to strengthen the voices of children worldwide and bring them directly into other classrooms across borders. Many teachers do not really know what is going on on the other side of the planet
EQUATOR therefore creates school links between North and South and gives children on both sides of the equator a broad view of the world. Children from primary school share videos with each other via a secure platform under the supervision of a teacher. In this way they together create learning opportunities across the equator.
We bring the North and South closer together, build bridges between cultures and thus stimulate respect, tolerance and global citizenship. We raise awareness among children - and therefore also their parents - about the different life situations of school children in the rest of the world. Through active exchange of learning opportunities, we encourage committed and equal relationships.
Our project calls on schools and NGOs worldwide to cooperate and receives the support of colleges, universities and other professional partners. Our team of ambassadors travels around the world looking for stories that we share with our network.
