4th Gymnasium Student Symposium in Attica ASPnet – UNESCO Associated Schools Network

On Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16, 2019, Pierce – The American College of Greece hosted the 4th Gymnasium Student ASPnet UNESCO Symposium in Attica, which was co-organized by the Ministry of Education, Research and Religion and the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO. The theme of this year’s Student Conference was “17 goals for our future” and participating students analyzed and discussed the 17 United Nations goals for sustainable development, focusing on two sub-topics: the role that young people can play in achieving them and collaborations.

On the first day of the Symposium, 17 Gymnasiums in the ASPnet UNESCO Network in Attica presented an artistic depiction of the theme in our Theater. Then, the students of the associated schools formed working committees, in which they discussed the theme of the Symposium. The outcome of each working committee formed a resolution on the key points of their discussion. On the second day of the Symposium, the students of all the schools met in a plenary session, during which the resolutions of the working committees were voted upon.
