Dear Katja,

I hope you are well. I am interested in a possible collaboration between Finnish faculty and primary school teachers and the University of North Carolina Wilmington.


Recently, I was awarded a Global Scholars Grant (a US Department of Education initiative) to learn how other nations are teaching children about global issues with emphasis on Finland. I am interested in Finland as a nation that values teaching children about their rights and one that has UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools.

I wish to collaborate with Finnish faculty who are preparing teachers to teach about global issues in ways that are appropriate for the primary grades, ideally those related to the newly enacted Global Goals, as well as primary school teachers doing the same.
 
In September 2015, the United Nations are launching global goals, a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030.
I have planned to visit Finland May 6-14, 2016.
