The UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) is looking for 4 online volunteers to provide simultaneous interpretation Chinese-English, English-Chinese during a Global Meeting, which takes place on 31 May - 4 June 2021 from 1-5 pm CET, including breaks. A team of 2 volunteers will share the task and work in a rotating principle. The volunteers only translate if there is an intervention by a Chinese speaking participant. The topics of the sessions range from Global Citizenship Education for Sustainable Development, “Story Circles” Training of trainers on inter-cultural competencies to aligning curricula, pedagogies, and assessment for transformative education. The volunteer will highly contribute to the exchange and understanding of the participating deans, teacher educators, teacher students, and ASPnet National Coordinators from 19 countries, as well as representatives from UNESCO Programme Sections and UNESCO Institutes and Centres from across the world.

Translation and interpretation
The UNESCO Associated Schools Network (ASPnet) links educational institutions across the world around a common goal: ‘to construct the defences of peace in the minds of children and young people’. Established in 1953, ASPnet promotes the ideals and values of UNESCO by reinforcing the humanistic, ethical, cultural and international dimensions of education. UNESCO ASPnet connects more than 11,500 institutions in over 180 countries, which provide pre-primary, primary, secondary, technical or vocational education, or teacher training. The Global Meeting’s objective is to provide ASPnet Teacher Education & Training Institutions with inspirational discussions and learning opportunities in support of their development and implementation of change experiments and projects on Global Citizenship Education for Sustainable Development. Online Volunteers will make a crucial contribution to advance this mission and make meetings accessible. We will credit the Online Volunteers by providing recognition letters signed by the Chief of UNESCO ASPnet
