Education is key to changing the world, but a sustainable and just world can only be achieved through a vision of life-long and life-wide education that inspires hearts and minds!

Transformative education is key to everything that we do. For example, we focus on advocacy for target 4.7 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals which aims to “by 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.”
We strive to form a vibrant coalition across continents. The aim is to create a space for members to collaborate on transforming our societies through education and to help them spot inspiring, out of the box opportunities for cooperation.
