Global education in progress

As an UNESCO Chair Professor Hannele Niemi is dedicated to promoting UNESCO objectives through University’s functions: by networking with other professors, participating in international debate in conferences, generate new knowledge and engage in research cooperation. The dissemination of research information to various institutions in society is a central task. “Globally speaking, it is a great achievement that most children are going to school. A bigger problem is that in much of the world, the children are learning next to nothing in their schools. Even after four years of school, many pupils can’t read or add,” —Hannele Niemi
