I would like to share the link of Radio Garden project which is helping teachers and students connect all over the world in different languages promoting teaching and learning all over the world. Radio Garden has reached places where there's no teacher at all and is changing lives. Online volunteering is another fantastic opportunity for teachers and also students who would like to share their knowledge and help other people with their learning but do not have a teacher or a peer where they live.

Change the world in just your pyijamas is another fantastic tool for the ones who would like to donate a few week hours from their time to help students as teachers or advanced peers

The Teddy Bear poster was in the permanent exhibition during all conference and Hip Hop on the Spot was presented twice for the 21st Youth Summit.

 Hip Hop on the Spot was created by teachre Rose Rocha and integrates platform since 2014.

It was a great presentation and the students are very motivated to join us. Keep checking for news.
