Research on Global Educational Trends 

The research is aimed to provide results which can lead us to update our methodology and to re - think on which way YRE programme can be developed in the schools. The main objective is to find a general framework suitable on the different countries where the programme is running. From this framework, we would like to develop a guide for schools curriculum. We will emphasize on educational programme combining environment and journalism with the SDGs as central axis. 

The research will be handled from our new intern, Lucía González, on the Head Office. In the following link there is more information about the position profile and the research base.
