Walk the Global Walk has mobilized young Europeans since 2017 as actors in the development of a culture of peace and the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through education in human rights and civic values.
Supported in Europe by the Tuscany Region and Oxfam Italia, co-funded by the European Union, Walk the Global Walk brings together local authorities, educational communities and associations from twelve European states: Italy, France, Croatia, Cyprus, Wales, Scotland, Portugal, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Bosnia Herzegovina and Albania.
This European project promotes an innovative educational model in order to better understand the issues linked to current global issues: climate change, migration, equality between women and men. This year, a focus is on SDG n ° 16 "Peace, justice and strong institutions".
In Normandy, the program is implemented by the International Institute for Human Rights and Peace, which visits the classes registered in the program several times, in order to raise students' awareness of the SDGs but also and above all with the aim of to stimulate in each class a dynamic of project creation in favor of sustainable development.
