Shaping the world
Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2030.Our mission is to prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to teach them how to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. We must encourage our young people to embrace and shape their own futures and to understand that they form part of a global community and are capable of shaping the world.
At Agora Príncipes Infant School and Agora Granada College International School, as Globeducate schools, we are committed to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. As part of this commitment, we have entered into partnerships with international organisations such as the Eco-schools Project and WWF (World Wildlife Fund), participating in global schools’ projects that involve students, teachers and parents, and bringing together a worldwide community of more than 100,000 people.
In addition to these agreements with prestigious organisations, Globeducate organises international events every year, bringing together students from all over the world from the group's different schools. Students share their knowledge in an atmosphere of healthy competition and exchange their projects and solutions. These events include sporting, academic, musical and artistic competitions, as well as meetings to develop leadership and public speaking skills or United Nations simulations in which pupils represent delegates from different countries and debate global issues in English.
Our pupils develop different solidarity initiatives, collaborating with national organisations such as Caritas as well as others at a local level in which they focus on collecting clothes for the "Madre Coraje" association in Granada. They have also participated in dance festivals, the proceeds of which have been donated to Andalusian associations that help families of children with cancer.
The aim of this agenda is to educate students who are committed to the world and to the great challenges of our time. Students with a wide range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success. Through multilingualism and internationalism, our students become aware of their world and learn to appreciate other cultures and points of view. An education based on values such as commitment, empathy, respect and responsibility so that our students contribute to building a better world through mutual understanding and intercultural respect.
