Category: 5. Education and Solidarity
One of our most important priorities is caring for the growth of the next generations. Beyond sustaining basic needs of food, water, health, shelter, safety, community and culture, education is integral in being able to respond to change and to in finding opportunities. We are challenged to be part of a cohesive and productive society that is integral in its relations and works hand-in-hand in sustaining the environment for all.
Education must not be limited to providing information, it must be integral and serve local not just global aspirations. It is a process by which to students may come to understand their creative role in caring for the world and develop habits and values to sustain others and all life. As youth they can already act and build a greater solidarity with those in need and in seeking for a more responsive economic and political systems. Educational institutions in particular are called to go beyond the confines of the campus in deepening the learning experience, by seeking to affect change on the ground and leveraging the need for change with communities and in society. In this way we may help in supporting and forming a new generation with hope and responsibility.
