WE ARE ON A GRAND GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP ALLIANCE ON EDUCATION. AFTER ENSURING THE MEANS OF LIVELIHOOD, “EDUCATION” IS SEEN AS FOUNDATION OF THE 17 TRANSFORMATIONAL GOALS LAID OUT BY THE UN FOR 2030.
The Global Office of the Montfortian Education foundation has been running a series of resource material on 17 SDGs with all its Targets as laid out by the United Nations. The common objective is the “Transformation of the world by 2030”. We, as educationists are part of the core of this whole. Hence the parts – our institutions – cannot be fully meaningful unless we are with the whole in perception, commitment and transformative actions. Our assumption is that by this time all Montfortian institutions in 32 countries across the 5 continents are familiar with the 17 SDGs. They should be prominently displayed for ready reference as we work for the realization of it for the next 13 years. An year of awareness is coming to an end. All our Teachers, Students and even Parents should be familiar with this global mission. We are working out MEF Indicators for Montfortian Institutions and hope to reach out with process monitoring during coming months and years.
We are entering into a specific and focussed Phase of our awareness programme on Goal No. 4 which is Education. As educationists we are all aware that this is the one global concern of all people of good will. Rethinking on education, reformulating educational process, restructuring educational formats, and resourcing the educational opportunities are going on across the globe. To be part of it is the way to be Great Educators, as we Montfortians want to be. Transition from Good to Great is a personal choice and Montfortian Education Mission challenges everyone to make the grade.
I SUGGEST THAT ALL OUR INSTITUTIONS SET UP A “THINK TANK-MONITORING GROUP” ON SDG 4.
Montfortian Education promotes universal access to education which includes the process and resources, including knowledge sources. We promote OPEN SOURCE materials and request Governments and educational agencies to facilitate the process for providing equal opportunities for all. CLICK HERE
