“Innovation keys proposed by the Global Education Compact”. This will be the title of the presentation given by M. Montserrat del Pozo, Superior of the Missionary Daughters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, at the next edition of the Inter-American Meeting on Educational Pastoral Care.
The event, organized by the Inter-American Confederation of Catholic Education (CIEC), reaches its sixth edition this year under the slogan “Lessons from the Global Educational Compact for the Catholic School of America”, and will be held entirely online on September 16 and 17.
The objective is to contribute to the reflection on the contributions that the Global Educational Compact proposed by Pope Francis encourages, suggests and transforms in the Catholic School of America.
It is a meeting aimed at realizing the message of Pope Francis at the launch of the Global Educational Compact: “to rekindle the commitment by and with the young generations, renewing the passion for a more open and inclusive education, capable of patient listening, constructive dialogue and mutual understanding. Today more than ever, it is necessary to unite efforts for a broad educational alliance to form mature people, capable of overcoming fragmentations and oppositions and rebuilding the fabric of relationships for a more fraternal humanity”.
Every change, such as the time we are living, calls for an educational path, the constitution of an education village that creates a network of human and open relationships. Such a village should put the individual at the centre, encourage creativity and responsibility for long-term projects and make people available to serve the community.
Therefore, there is a need for a concept of education that embraces the wide range of life experiences and learning processes and that allows young people to develop their personality individually and collectively. Education does not end in the classrooms of schools, but is affirmed primarily by respecting and reinforcing the primary right of the family to educate, and the right of the Churches and social entities to support and collaborate with families in the education of children. The full program of the event is available here.
