We are staring this 2017 with great news! We have 3 new members, SEK Guadalajara (Mexico), SEK Los Valles (Ecuador) and IES Ljubljana (Slovenia). Please give them a warm welcome. We are happy to say that they have sent us articles about special events that they have celebrated in their schools. ISA needs to keep growing and encouraging the importance of international education and understanding. We would like to ask that all ISA members share our mission with fellow educators and help us create a stronger network.
ISA and The Global Goals
Working together we can make this happen.
ISA 65 years ago was founded to help build a better world by promoting international education. And now ISA can be part of The Global Goals initiative. In, September of 2015 World Leaders announced their commitment to helping the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality and injustice. Fix climate change. These goals are about making our world better and we should encourage our students to become the generation that changes the world. You will find some great articles in this issue that support these goals.
Education is the best instrument to build a better world. Living in peace is achieved by working together and celebrating our cultural diversity and similarity.
