The Steering Committee of the former project “schools500reformation” is replaced by the GPEN Council which will gather for the first time in November and assemble members of all continents.

The network activities will from now on be created and accompanied by the GPEN Ambassadors who are representing their respective countries and at the same time contact persons for the schools in the network. The ambassadors themselves are linked globally to each other and give ideas to the GPEN Council.

Besides this, the fruitful cooperation between science and educational practice that was already present in schools500reformation will be continued: a Scientific Consortium will accompany the development of the network and support its goals and priorities scientifically.

The administration office in Germany and other places is as before responsible for organisational matters, contact and communication. As for now, the staff members of the GPENreformation administrative office are the same as the former schools500reformation team.
