EREBB Global Classrooms Partners
Would you like your students to have the opportunity to meet and dialogue with other young people from around the world, and to raise their voices for a better world for all? The EREBB Global Classroom Partners’ Program links classrooms from Edmund Rice schools, to learn from, with and about each other, while exploring some of the world’s most pressing issues. Groups of students (with their teacher) undertake two lessons and have two video conferences with a global classroom partner. These connections are facilitated to ensure deep dialogue can occur and are based around the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
