Peace for the Planet. A planet of Peace. 

13 to 19 November 2023


Global Education helps learners to develop individual and collective responses to social, ecological, political, economic, and ethical issues of common concern. It mobilises commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular SDG 4.7: Education for sustainable development and global citizenship.

The Global Education Week is an annual worldwide awareness raising initiative unfolding during the third week of November. It is a call to rethink our world together, using Global Education as a tool for solidarity and change and contribute to a more and sustainable and equitable world. In preparation and during the Week solutions are shared to rethink our habits and ways of living, spending, and consuming but also finding new ways of education and socialisation.



In 2023, the actions of the Global Education Week will focus on two of the five pillars of the Agenda 2030 (People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership). The slogan of this edition is: “Peace for the planet. A planet of peace”. Nevertheless, any activity that contributes to the five pillars can be part of the event.
