Global Citizenship

School Activities > Green Schools

“The world faces global challenges, which require global solutions. These interconnected global challenges call for far-reaching changes in how we think and act for the dignity of fellow human beings.” “It is not enough for education to produce individuals who can read, write and count.” “Education must be transformative and bring shared values to life. It must cultivate an active care for the world and for those with whom we share it. Education must also be relevant in answering the big questions of the day.” “Technological solutions, political regulation or financial instruments alone cannot achieve sustainable development. It requires transforming the way people think and act.” “Education must fully assume its central role in helping people to forge more just, peaceful, tolerant and inclusive societies. It must give people the understanding, skills and values they need to cooperate in resolving the interconnected challenges of the 21st century.”
