Narrative Atlas connects learners around the world to share their own stories and solutions to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
MapWorks Learning, Teachers Without Borders, and Ushahidi have pooled their expertise to provide a robust environment for student and teacher engagement and problem-based inquiry.
Student projects involve collaborative problem-solving and tangible, measurable learning outcomes to address the pressing global challenges of the 21st century articulated in the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals, such as climate change, poverty, energy, and environment. Narrative Atlas deepens the personal, social, cultural, global, and academic dimensions of 21st century learning.
TEACHERS AND COLLABORATION
Narrative Atlas assists teachers by pairing them with overseas partners, providing ongoing guidance, and collecting, creating, and curating open educational resources (OERs), such as curricula, lesson plans, and instructional templates.

Stories bring us together, encourage us to understand and empathize, and help us to communicate. Long before paper and books were common and affordable, information passed from generation to generation through this oral tradition of storytelling.
