In June 2019, the Institute for Strategy of Education Development of the Russian Academy of Education signed an agreement on cooperation with Cross Education, an international school in Tokyo, Japan.
President and Director of Cross Education Greg Culos was admitted to the Scientific Council on Comparative Education at the Department of the Philosophy of Education and Theoretical Pedagogy of the Russian Academy of Education; he also became an expert of the UNESCO Chair on Global Education of the Institute.
The Institute joined the project, which Cross Education conducts together with the Yamaguchi prefecture, Mine City - the first annual International Summit for Children and Youth: Creating Hope, Opening Minds, Designing Life.
The goal of the summit is to unite children and adolescents from 5 to 18 years with a joint project activity, to form communication and group work skills in various types of creative activity.
The UNESCO Chair on Global Education, established on the basis of the Institute, provides scientific and methodological support for the project. The Institute team members initiated project competitions in their schools-experimental sites. The projects-winners are sent to the exhibition as part of the “Day of Russia” at the Summit, provided for in its program.
