Global Compact on Education

It takes a village to raise a child”. An African proverb is the slogan chosen by Pope Francis to launch the Global Compact on Education, a global educational pact, which will be signed on 15 October 2020 in the Vatican, by representatives of the major religions, of international organizations and humanitarian institutions, as well as members of the academic, economic, political and cultural world.

The Holy Father has instructed the Congregation for Catholic Education to appeal to those who care about the education of the younger generations, to involve them in the pact, which each of them will undertake to implement in its own sphere and spread as much as possible. The Congregation is the authority of the Holy See to which 216,000 Catholic schools and 1750 universities worldwide refer.

In the series of preparatory events, the PISAI organized, on February 24 2020, in collaboration with the Pontifical Gregorian University (Cardinal Bea Centre for Jewish Studies and Interreligious Studies Centre), a study day entitled When Religions Contribute to Education for a more Fraternal Humanity.
Seven speakers representing seven different religious traditions (Catholicism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and traditional African religions) participated in a roundtable discussion on the theme: What are the resources of one's own religious tradition for building universal brotherhood?
