Get inspired by reading about other projects

In this section you will find files presenting examples of global education projects.

Where do these files come from?

As part of the REDDSO project various schools launched a range of initiatives in association with local authorities and organisations. These initiatives were given funding and/or methodological support based on the selection criteria specific to each region. The examples shared in this section are taken from these initiatives.

How have these examples been selected?

A working group composed of partners of the REDDSO project drew up a list of common criteria to select the examples published in this section (lien vers la grille). The files available to read here therefore correspond to these elements. A whole host of other initiatives were implemented and developed in the various regions involved in the overall project(cf. rubriques liens).
