Celebrating Global Action Week for education

Education is a fundamental human right and contributes to improving living conditions and eradicating the cycle of poverty faced by children in the developing world.

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) has launched a Global Action Week for Education urging governments and the international community to keep their promises and ensure early childhood care and education.

With just three years to go until the target date for achieving the second UN Millennium Development Goal (universal primary education), the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is focusing in 2012 on advocating for the right to early childhood education, the 0-8 age group.

During the week from 22 to 28 April, in the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation, we have carried out two interesting outreach activities, with the aim of bringing hydrogen technologies as an energy vector to the youngest. We have done it under the slogan ‘Do you know that we could save the planet with the fuel of the stars?

On the one hand, on 23 April we celebrated Aragon Day at the Pignatelli Building in Zaragoza. There, in its gardens, we had the opportunity to offer different scientific workshops with our Dr.Fuel model, an educational tool that shows how the water molecule breaks down to form hydrogen. This is then transformed into energy.

On the other hand, on April 27th, we have accompanied ASPACE Huesca during their day of delivery of dorsal numbers for their iconic March. Every year, the Walk aims to promote the inclusion of people with cerebral palsy and related disabilities of all ages, as well as to raise awareness in society to promote normalisation. And in each edition, the Walk raises funds to finance basic and necessary projects that contribute to improving the quality of life of these people, as Aspace Huesca is the only entity in the province that serves this group. This year, it has beaten its record again with more than 10,000 registered participants.
