UNESCO Associated Schools (ASPnet)


UNESCO ASPnet was established in 1953, with the aim to encourage contact among youth in member states of the Organisation and to enhance cooperation between students and teachers, in order to contribute in the effective implementation of UNESCO’s vision. This global network comprises of more than 10 000 educational institutions in 181 countries today.  Within its framework for quality education for all, UNESCO publishes an annual collection of ASPnet Good Practices, thus contributing in the exchange of information and the promotion of schools from all over the world.

Cyprus has been participating in the network since 1969-1970. The network today comprises of public and private schools, which organize conferences, prepare projects and participate in events organized by ASPnet schools abroad.

The Secretariat of the UNESCO Network of Associated Schools in Cyprus is under the Department of Secondary Education at the Ministry of Education and Culture. Currently, the National Coordinator is Mr Pavlos Dapolas.
