The Catholic Education Congregation issued a statement in which it talked about the assistance and guidance it provides regarding the Global Educational Charter. In its statement, the Synod referred to a meeting between representatives of religions to be organized in the Vatican on October 5 under the title “Religions and Education, Towards a Global Pact for Education”.
Despite the difficulties associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, the Global Education Pact continues to arouse interest in the world at various levels. This was confirmed by the Congregation for Catholic Education in a statement, which reminded that the global event called by Pope Francis on September 12, 2019 did not start on the scheduled date, May 14, 2020, due to the spread of the Corona virus, but that there were many local initiatives around the world. It has gained great importance at various institutional levels. For this reason, the Catholic Education Congregation was automatically approached in order to provide accurate directions and directives for concrete action.
The statement thus spoke of the complex providing three tools, the first of which is guidance on the application of the educational charter directed to educators who are entrusted with accompanying young people and young people on formative marches. The second tool is a book issued by the Vatican Library and Publishing House entitled “Education between crisis and hope” that provides guidance on five main issues in the educational charter, namely, interreligious and intercultural dialogue, dignity and human rights, a culture of peace and citizenship, fraternity and cooperation, technologies and an integrated ecology. The third tool is a copy of an agreement that can be used at the local level in order to build a practical charter towards achieving the educational charter.
In its statement, the Synod stated that the publication of the documents in five languages on the official website of the Global Education Compact, www.educationglobalcompact.org, would coincide with a meeting to be held in the Vatican on October 5 between representatives of religions, with the theme “Religions and Education, Towards a Global Pact for Education”.
