Title: Curriculum Project
Description/subject: "The Curriculum Project was established in 2001, to work with post-high school (Post-10) schools along the Thai/Burma border. Curriculum Project works with teachers and students to design curricula and materials, and provides teacher training and teacher support programmes. All schools and organizations the project works with are run by, and teach, refugees and marginalized groups from Burma, based in Thailand, India and China. The programs supported by the Curriculum Project are all Post-10 programs: education institutes and courses for students who have graduated from year 10, but need further training before going on to community work or accessing the few higher education opportunities available to refugees from Burma. The Curriculum Project’s objectives are to develop curricula and materials for two purposes: to capacitate students for work in community organisations, and to prepare students for further education opportunities. Currently we are working on curricula, materials and teacher training for general and academic english, social studies, maths and science. The project also assists teachers working on Burmese as a second language and community development."

Title: A Practical Guide to the UN Global Compact for higher education institutions: Implementing the Global Compact Principles and Communicating on Progress
Date of publication: 2012
Description/subject: Introduction and Overview: "The United Nations Global Compact is the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative. Organisations join the Global Compact because they share the conviction that busi-ness practices rooted in universal principles contribute to more stable and inclusive economies, more prosperous and thriving societies, and a more educated citizenry. The Global Compact has been widely adopted by businesses, but until now the process for adoption by HEIs has not been clearly mapped. With the publication of this Guide, HEIs are encouraged to participate in the Global Compact as deeply and meaningfully as the thousands of traditional corporate and organisational participants that have adopted its principles for over a decade. Thousands of participating companies from nearly 140 countries, as well as many non- business participants report regularly on their progress. The Communication on Progress (COP) has become a hallmark of the Global Compact, since it provides organisations with a tangible reference point as they continue to improve processes and operations to create more optimal social conditions at home and in the world. A unique feature of the Global Compact is that participation not only commits the institu-tion as a whole, but specifically its leadership. Within education, the personal involvement of top administrators is an important signal to faculty, staff, students, alumni, and other stake-holders that the institution’s citizenship engagement is a strategic and operational priority. An institution-wide commitment can thus have tremendous influence o n the quality of Global Compact implementation..."
