Lab 6 : For a positive and constructive presence in the international organizations (Education 2030 – SGD 4)

The right to education is a human right (Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights). Catholic schools are represented, through the OIEC, within the United Nations system: ECOSOC (Geneva and New York) and UNESCO (Paris). They are also represented in the Council of Europe. Within these bodies, the representatives of the OIEC act to support the freedom of education on the one hand, and especially for the defense, in connection with other NGOs, of the right to education for all. Today, the international community is involved in a 2030 Education program, which the OIEC supports. It is therefore up to the Catholic schools of the world to contribute more to the debate on the formulation of indicators of quality education on the one hand (SDG4) and the educational policies of the States on the other.
