The Global Compact on Education is an initiative of Pope Francis calling all of the Church’s teaching orders and educators to renew their commitment to more open and inclusive education of young people. Inspired by the Pope’s message, the Brothers of the Christian Schools considered the future of education and produced an action plan for 2022-2023 with the aim of promoting the implementation of this vision in Lasallian ministries. For more information about the Global Compact on Education and the implementation plan as Lasallians, consult Intercom 153 and its supplementary materials.
