Educating for Global Citizenship

Throughout the IBVM world- wide network we are engaged in formal and non- formal education of girls and boys, young women and men as global citizens who acknowledge their responsibilities to each other, to the human community and the earth. We educate to understand the causes of injustice and inequality and work actively to do create a more humane, just and sustainable world.       Let’s begin with the SDGs.

Seventeen Goals and 15 years to implement them and make sure that no one is left behind in the process.  Easy! If every school in the world teaches children about the Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals as they are also called, we will help them become the generation that changed the world.  A global challenge for global citizens present and future.
