Global Learning With Children


YOU + ME: FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD is an educational programme for children at a Children's Service and primary school. Children get to know one another worldwide. They meet at eye level in an ecumenical context. And they are open for what they share and where they differ. In their own blog an international editoral team writes about different aspects of Global Learning and news of the children's programme.
